Serie A giants AC Milan are reportedly evaluating the possibility of signing former Birkirkara goalkeeper Alessandro Guarnone.
A report on Tuttomercatoweb.com said that Guarnone, who came through the AC Milan youth system, could be a candidate to be the club’s third goalkeeper for season 2021-22.
AC Milan are currently looking to strengthen their goalkeepers’ department following the departure of Gianluigi Donnarrumma and his brother Antonio.
Guarnone formed part of the AC Milan Academy for several years and the report said that the Serie A club are seriously considering offering him a contract for next season in the role of third goalkeeper. In fact, the report said that given his past in the club’s youth system he would not take a spot in the club’s UEFA Champions League roster that would be submitted to UEFA.
The 22-year-old goalkeeper has enjoyed a very positive season with Birkirkara last season after joining the Valley Club last October.
In fact, Guarnone made 19 appearances with Birkirkara and managed nine clean sheets.
His performances helped Birkirkara to finish fourth in the BOV Premier League that earned the side a place in the newly-formed UEFA Europa Conference League.
