Milan Brass Makes Germany Trip, Delineates Priorities

Two of the top Milan executives, Geoffrey Moncada and Antonio D’Ottavio, spent some time in Germany in recent weeks to scout a few players directly and open communications with their respective teams and camps. A few Bundesliga options are in their crosshairs, Calciomercato relays.

Maxence Lacroix is one of their main targets to reinforce the defense. He’s particularly intriguing for Serie A sides because, in addition to being reliable and young-ish, his short-term contract keeps his price tag in check. They are ready to tussle with Juventus to sign him.

Milan are also very keen on Assan Ouédraogo, who has a €12M release clause. The last time their officials flew to Germany, they touched base with Serhou Guirassy. However, they didn’t convince him to leave in January.

He too can be acquired for a fixed fee: €17.5M. However, he’s older than the candidates to be their next no.9 and demands lofty wages. The 28-year-old has continued going like gangbusters. He has scored 23 goals in 21 Bundesliga matches.

According to Tuttosport, the Rossoneri will focus primarily on four roles next summer. On top of a new striker, they seek a defensive-minded midfielder, a center-back, and a Theo Hernandez deputy.

Guirassy has seemingly fallen off their radar, but he’s a sound alternative if their top options become too pricey, which might easily occur. They have their priorities in order, but most of the budget should be reserved for the center-forward.
