Milan Add Feyenoord Marksman to Offensive Shortlist

Milan are keeping tabs on Santiago Gimenez due to the difficulties for other targets to fill their hole at the no.9 role. The Mexican marksman has filled his boots during his time with Feyenoord. He will depart for a massive fee this summer, Corriere dello Sport informed (via Goal).

The center-forward hit the net 26 times this campaign after doing so on 23 occasions in his maiden one in Europe. He has added 11 assists for good measure. He transferred across the pond after spearheading the Cruz Azul frontline for multiple years.

According to the publication, Milan have had multiple contacts with the Gimenez camp in recent weeks. His candidacy is gaining steam. However, his team values him at least €55/60M amid the interest from several deep-pocketed outfits, especially English ones.

The Rossoneri have run into significant hurdles for Joshua Zirkzee. Serhou Guirassy is prioritizing a transfer to the Premier League. He’s also being chased by Borussia Dortmund. Jonathan David is an option, but they might prefer somebody with different traits.

Our Take on Milan and Gimenez

He’d be a high-profile gamble, as it remains to be seen how his performance would translate to a more competitive and defensive-minded league. While it’s understandable to be financially cautious, they’ll have to spend pretty big to snap up a worthy and surefire option to lead their attack in the future, as those players don’t grow on trees.
