Taiwo looking to leave AC Milan for Benfica

Taiwo joined AC Milan from Marseille in the summer of 2011, but has failed to make the expected impact at the San Siro.

The 27-year-old spent time on loan at Queens Park Rangers last season.

“If Benfica are considering signing me for the next season, then I can only thank them for showing an interest in me,” Taiwo told O Jogo.

“My plan is to develop and improve myself every year and next season it will also be like that. Benfica would be a good club for me to develop and improve myself.”

Taiwo’s current contract with AC Milan is set to expire in the summer of 2014.
