Recent reports from Italy suggesting a potential transfer of Celtic midfielder David Turnbull to AC Milan in January have been dismissed as mere speculation.
Despite the growing interest surrounding Turnbull, it appears that a move to the Serie A club, particularly for a fee of £7 million, is not on the cards.
Turnbull, 24, whose contract with Celtic is set to expire next summer, joined the Glasgow club in 2020 from Motherwell.
His situation at Celtic has been a topic of discussion, especially considering his current contractual status and his role in Brendan Rodgers’ team. While Turnbull has made 14 appearances this season, with half of them being starts, and has matched that number with his goal tally, his future at Celtic remains uncertain.
He currently sits as the joint-top scorer in the league.
The initial claims of Turnbull’s potential transfer to Milan were made by Michele Fratine, a renowned Italian scout and intermediary. Fratine had indicated a strong interest from Milan in Turnbull, but these claims are now unfounded. [The Celtic Way]
There will be many rumours surrounding the player for the foreseeable future, especially as January approaches and the player is able to sign a pre-contract agreement with other clubs.
