He got his first chance in the first team against KF Shkëndija in a Europa League Play-off tie on 24 August 2017. After playing for the Primavera squad, he was loaned out for the 2018/19 season to Serie C side Lucchese, before being recalled.
In the Rossoneri shirt, he has shown himself to be an important member of the defensive unit, particularly in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 season where he was often called upon. In all competitions for the club, as of June 2022, he has 30 appearances to his name.
