Milan Insert Montpellier Starlet in Offensive Wishlist

Milan are doing the legwork to identify the right young forward to onboard next summer, and they have set sights on Montpellier star Elye Wahi. The youngster is having a great season, as he has bagged 12 goals in 24 matches.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Rossoneri see him as a strong fit since he can play either as a striker or left winger. While they are targeting several options for the first position, he’s one of the first candidates to emerge as a possible heir to Rafael Leao, as there’s no end in sight to his extension saga.

Milan have reportedly joined Rennes in the race to acquire Wahi, who might transfer for a €20M fee. The attacker bagged ten goals in the previous campaign. He followed it up by further improving his numbers. He has added 5 assists in 75 total Ligue 1 matches.

In the same role, the Rossoneri have long been scouting RB Salzburg’s prodigy Noah Okafor. He just switched representatives and signed up for the Sport360 agency, Calciomercato informs. He has decided not to extend his contract, which expires in 2024 and leave in the summer. His new camp is well connected in Bundesliga. He’s on the radar of RB Leipzig and other teams. The Serie A team will soon talk with his entourage too. He has a €20/25M evaluation.

Our Take on Milan, Wahi, and Okafor

The reigning champions will surely go young with their next forwards. There’s no shortage of alternatives, but price tags and statuses will be known only in a few months. It’s still early to have a clear picture. A lot will hinge on Leao. If he leaves, which is looking increasingly likely, they’ll spread the money on a pair of talents.
