Milan Inquire About Euro Show Stealer Whose Price Is Through the Roof

Milan are not eyeing only cheap signings to strengthen their front-line. They have reached out to Bayer Leverkusen to ask for information on Patrik Schick. However, thanks to his phenomenal Euro, the German club start from a €40M evaluation, Tuttomercatoweb and SportMediaset report.

The Rossoneri are keeping tabs on several options to partner Zlatan Ibrahimovic after letting go of Mario Mario Mandzukic. They have been insistently linked to Olivier Giroud and Luka Jovic. The Frenchman needs to rescind his deal with Chelsea first, while the Serbian forward would join on loan from Real Madrid.

Schick would be a drastically different type of acquisition. However, Milan ownership has not been shy in investing in players with potential. He could become a real target if the Rossoneri cashed in properly from few sales. In particular, they could part ways with Tommaso Pobega, Jens Petter-Hauge, Samu Castillejo, and Rafael Leao. If all of them departed for strong fees, they would easily have the funds to bankroll a pricey signing.

Schick is one goal shy of Cristiano Ronaldo in the top scorers’ chart of the Euro. Czech Republic will face Denmark tomorrow. He broke out at Sampdoria in 2016/2017 but then did not live up to expectations at Roma following a €42M move. He bounced back in Bundesliga over the past two seasons, bagging 19 goals in his stints at RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen. Die Aspirin bought him for €26.5M last September. Despite the price tag, his salary and age fit the parameters Milan generally look for in their additions.
