Milan are struggling to come to terms with Villarreal for Samuel Chukwueze and might soon pivot toward a different option for the same role, Gustav Isaksen. They have keenly scouted the winger in the past campaign, SportMediaset informs.
The youngster wreaked havoc in particular in a Europa League fixture against Lazio. He led Midtjylland to a stunning 5-1 win at home in the group stage. The attacker can play either on the flank or as a false-nine He thrived in the second role.
Milan have had early conversations with his side, while striking a deal with Isaksen on personal terms would be easy. Juventus are reportedly interested too, but the Rossoneri moved earlier.
The 22-year-old is coming of his best season yet. He recorded 22 goals and 9 assists in 45 appearances across all competitions. He scored three times in the continental competition. The talent has starred for Midtjylland for the entirety of his career.

He fits more the profile of the players the Rossoneri were expected to target after ousting Paolo Maldini to lean on a more analytical approach. He’d be a low-risk, high-reward signing considering his versatility and the fact that he’d begin behind a more established player like Christian Pulisic.
