Kevin Zeroli Set to Extend Contract with AC Milan

By Milcah Tanimu

Kevin Zeroli, the Italy U19 international of Nigerian descent, is on the verge of signing a new contract with Italian Serie A powerhouse AC Milan.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, AC Milan views Kevin Zeroli’s contract extension as imminent, with the central midfielder expected to finalize the deal soon.

Positive discussions have been held between AC Milan and Zeroli’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, leading to an agreement in principle reached two weeks ago. Finalizing the remaining details is the only step left before Zeroli puts pen to paper.

Despite being on the fringes of AC Milan’s first team this season, Zeroli has shown promise, earning nine call-ups across all competitions. He has made three appearances for the first team, totaling twenty-seven minutes of play, with two appearances in the Serie A.

Zeroli’s Serie A debut against Sassuolo on December 30 was witnessed by AC Milan legends Marco van Basten, Franco Baresi, and Mauro Tassotti at the iconic Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.

Born in Busto Arsizio to an Italian father and a Nigerian mother, Zeroli represented Italy at the U19 level last November. However, he remains eligible to switch allegiance to Nigeria if he desires.

Zeroli has been a standout performer in this season’s UEFA Youth League, contributing four goals in seven appearances to help AC Milan reach the semifinals.

With negotiations nearing completion, AC Milan looks forward to securing Zeroli’s services for the foreseeable future.
