A Milan's youth academy graduate, Gabbia received his first ever call-up to the senior team by head coach Vincenzo Montella ahead of a home Serie A game against Roma played on 7 May 2017; he, however, remained an unused substitute. He made his first appearance for the club on 24 August 2017 in a Europa League qualifier against Shkëndija as a 73rd-minute substitute for Manuel Locatelli.
Loan to LuccheseEdit
On 31 August 2018, Gabbia was loaned to Serie C club Lucchese on a season-long loan deal. On 16 September he made his Serie C debut in a 1–0 home defeat against Arezzo, he played the entire match. Eleven days later, on 27 September, he scored his first professional goal for Lucchese in the 47th minute of a 2–2 home draw against Carrarese. Gabbia ended his season-long loan to Lucchese with 30 appearances, all as a starter, he was replaced only 2 times, and he scored 1 goal.
He represented Italy at the 2016 UEFA European Under-17 Championship, they did not advance from the group stage.
Style of playEdit
Gabbia has been described as a very versatile player. Having started his youth career as a defensive or central midfielder, he later switched to deeper roles, such as a centre-back, in either a three or four-man defensive line. Besides his ball-winning abilities, Gabbia also retains playmaking attributes and tends to join the attacking play when opportunities present themselves.
