Milan snap up Brazilian Gabriel

It’s reported Milan have secured the signing of young Brazilian goalkeeper Gabriel from Cruzeiro.

The shot-stopper would come in as their third choice as back-up for Christian Abbiati and Marco Amelia.

According to Sky Sport Italia, a deal has been struck for 20-year-old Gabriel Vasconcelos Ferreira at a bargain price.

He has an EU passport, so would not take up a precious slot in the transfer strategy.

Gabriel is expected to fly in to Milan on Monday for his medical so he can sign the contract.
