Inter Milan ‘ready to pay £20m for Fulham’s Antonee Robinson’

Inter Milan ‘ready to pay £20m for Fulham’s Antonee Robinson’

Fulham defender Antonee Robinson has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Inter Milan.

Earlier in his career, the left-back had been on the brink of completing a move to AC Milan after making an impression while representing Wigan Athletic in the Championship.

However, an issue with his medical led to that transfer breaking down, ensuring that he remained at the DW Stadium and would eventually move to Fulham later in 2020.

Since then, the 25-year-old has only enhanced his reputation while representing the Cottagers and the United States, making a total of 83 appearances for the former.

On the international scene, Robinson has 31 caps for the Stars and Stripes, two of which have been earned while participating at the World Cup over the past week.

At a time when he is earning regular action in the Premier League and Fulham are in the top half of the table, head coach Marco Silva will remain confident of retaining Robinson’s services.

However, just over 19 months remain on his contract, and it appears that one of European football’s top clubs are ready to test Fulham’s resolve.

According to The Sun, Inter are ready to hand Robinson the chance to finally complete a move to San Siro to represent I Nerazzurri rather than their fierce rivals.

The report suggests that Inter would need to pay somewhere between £15m and £20m to secure a deal for Robinson in 2023.

Inter currently have a number of options for their left wing-back role with Federico Dimarco currently viewed as first choice by head coach Simone Inzaghi.

Nevertheless, Robin Gosens has been linked with a January exit, and Matteo Darmian and Danilo D’Ambrosio are not viewed as players who can regular challenge for a regular starting role.

Despite their recent financial issues, Inter may look to make changes to their squad in January with the club having lost five of their 15 matches in Italy’s top flight.

Although they have prevailed in the other 10 games, as many as 22 goals have been conceded, the team possessing the joint-12th worst defensive record in the division.
