Milan Exec Visits Germany to Speak with Guirassy Camp

Milan want new pieces on both ends, and their director Geoffrey Moncada recently traveled to Germany to talk with the entourage of Serhou Guirassy. He’s one of their options to bolster their attack, which has been in trouble without Olivier Giroud, Corriere dello Sport informs (via 90min).

Luka Jovic is coming off his first convincing showing of the season, as he scored and assisted versus Frosinone. The Rossoneri will see whether that’s a flash in the pan or if he’ll gain pace before deciding what to do in January.

Milan wouldn’t need to haggle with Stuttgart to sign Guirassy since there’s a €17M release clause in his contract. They’d have to do so if they wanted to change the payment structure. It remains to be determined whether the marksman would sign off on leaving midseason. Plus, a few other sides are tracking him as well.

The Rossoneri have long admired Jonathan David. Despite his underwhelming campaign and contractual situation, it’ll take at least €40M to acquire him from Lille. They might decide to keep their powders dry to have more funds next summer.

Our Take on Milan and Guirassy

Things hinge more on their Champions League future, or lack thereof, than on Jovic’s showings. They wouldn’t need to spend for another striker if they were eliminated. In that case, unless they fear the competition, which will be plentiful given the conditions of the deal, they’d be better off waiting. It’d be a slightly unusual signing for them given his age.

  1. A lot of times, we raise concerns about the age of attackers around 27-28 years, yet, we have the likes of Messi, Giroud, Cristiano, still doing well, at close to 40. Guirassy has done great so far this season. Plays like Marcus Thuram, that Milan missed out on, but, has better movement. He is fearless, and can shoot from anywhere. Let’s bring him in, this January, to challenge for the league.
