AC Milan eye move for Wolves ace Morgan Gibbs-White

Wolverhampton Wanderers starlet Morgan Gibbs-White has attracted interest from European giants AC Milan after a successful loan spell at Championship club Sheffield United.

What’s the word?

That is according to a report from Birmingham Live which claimed that the midfielder has hinted he would be open to a permanent move away from Molineux, although with the Blades’ failure to escape the Championship, it is unlikely that he would sign for the Yorkshire club permanently.

The Athletic reported that Gibbs-White’s stock has risen immeasurably and, as a result, Milan have enquired about the 22-year-old. The Staffordshire native fits into the Serie A leaders’ recent policy of signing young stars with vast potential.

Tim Spiers, who penned that piece for The Athletic, stated that Lage likes the player and wanted him back in January, but game-time at Wolves could be an issue for someone who has played 3,084 minutes of football this season for Sheffield United.

Lage facing disaster over Gibbs-White

Gibbs-White, who has been described as a “catalyst” by Laurie Whitwell, has lit up England’s second tier, finishing the campaign with 12 goals and 10 assists in 37 Championship games. His goal haul this season boosts his overall tally to 16 throughout his senior career thus far.

Should Gibbs-White leave Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

No

His loan spell with the Blades has been prosperous and has now seen his stock rise to the point where Serie A giants and title favourites Milan are interested in the 22-year-old.

Lage will have been relieved that Sheffield United did not achieve their goal of Premier League promotion, because if they did, he would have faced a tough battle to keep the youngster, who has enjoyed his time in south Yorkshire.

However, they might still face that challenge, and it’s no surprise as to why Milan are looking at the 22-year-old. His 12 goals and 10 assists would make him the Rossoneri’s top scorer and creator if he had replicated those numbers at San Siro this season, whilst his 16 big chances created this term would also see him rank top among Stefano Pioli’s squad.

Which club did Wolves loan Willian Jose from in the 2021 January transfer window?

Milan are missing an out-and-out creator in the engine room, with left-back Theo Hernandez setting up the most chances with 49.

That is something Wolves also lack, having created just 38 big chances this season, with their most established creator being Joao Moutinho with 38 standard chances created. Gibbs-White beats both Hernandez’s and Moutinho’s totals with 55 chances created.

Both Milan and Wolves will feel they need him, but Lage will need to give the starlet some assurances if he wants to avoid a summer transfer disaster, as the 22-year-old will surely not be short of offers in the summer.
