AC Milan are swooping for Brazilian goalkeeper Gabriel.

Sky Italia says 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.

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.
