Exclusive: AC Milan Ready Shock January Move for Derby Star Jayden Bogle

AC Milan are ready to make a shock move for Derby County star Jayden Bogle in January, having grown frustrated with their current right-back options.

Bogle initially made his breakthrough under Frank Lampard last season and he has gone from strength to strength ever since, with a number of top flight sides interested in pursuing a deal.

The 19-year-old has been linked with ​Burnley in recent weeks, but 90min has learned that scouts from ​AC Milan have been monitoring Bogle this season – and they have been impressed with what they have seen.

Milan are on the lookout for a new right-back in the near future as they are not happy with current options Davide Calabria and Andrea Conti.

The two Italians have rotated in Stefano Pioli’s side this season, but neither have really impressed and now both Calabria and Conti could be moved on in January to try and help the side improve.

Bogle has emerged as a potential option for I Rossoneri and Milan are ready to move for the Englishman in the January transfer window.

The teenager has already made 67 appearances for the ​Championship side and has racked up two goals and 14 assists to establish himself as one of the second tier’s most exciting young defenders.

An England Under-20 international, Bogle penned a four-year deal with Derby back in September 2018, but that has done little to fend off interest from a number of top sides.

His impressive form has caught the eye of Milan, who are in desperate need of some defensive reinforcements. Pioli’s side currently find themselves tenth in the ​Serie A standings, having won just six of their 16 league games this season. 

Both Calabria and Conti have been identified as potential weak links in Milan’s current side, so scouts have been instructed to find alternatives. Bogle’s impressive recent form has won them over, and it is now over to Milan officials to pursue a deal.
