Having joined Everton in 2020 from Norwich in a notable 27.5 million euros deal, Ben Godfrey has accumulated a total of 80 appearances for the Merseyside club, contributing three assists along the way. Despite his versatile skills and defensive prowess, the 25-year-old centre-back has struggled to secure a regular spot in the starting XI under manager Sean Dyche, who assumed the helm at Everton.
While Godfrey is primarily known for his role as a centre-back, he has showcased his adaptability by featuring in central midfield and as a full-back during the early stages of his career. However, his playing time has dwindled since Dyche’s appointment, with his last outing for Everton dating back to mid-December.
Recent reports from CalcioMercato suggest that AC Milan is closely monitoring Ben Godfrey’s situation, with the Italian giants considering a move for the English defender. Everton, seemingly open to offloading the player at a reasonable price in the January transfer window, could pave the way for a potential switch to Serie A.

The prospect of a move to Milan could offer a fresh start for Godfrey, revitalizing his career and providing him with the opportunity to make a significant impact on the European stage. Milan’s interest in the Goodison Park stalwart comes at a time when the player is seeking more regular playing time and a chance to regain his form.
With only two appearances for the England national team to his name, Ben Godfrey will be eager to impress on a new stage, potentially in the iconic red and black colors of AC Milan. The allure of playing in Italy’s top-flight league could be the catalyst for rejuvenating Godfrey’s career and showcasing his capabilities on a grander scale.
As the transfer window unfolds, the negotiations between AC Milan and Everton regarding Ben Godfrey will undoubtedly capture the attention of football enthusiasts worldwide, marking a pivotal chapter in the player’s career and the latest move for one of England’s promising defensive talents.
