Milan Prepare Target List But Much Depends on Leao

Milan’s actions in the summer transfer market will depend heavily on Rafael Leao. As SportMediaset relays, if he penned a contract extension, the Rossoneri management keep a low profile and target fewer players than expected.

Olivier Giroud recently inked a one-year renewal, and the recent performances of the Portuguese ace have understandably convinced the brass to step up their efforts to keep him. If the ex-Lille forward leaves, with Paris Saint-Germain reportedly one of the clubs eyeing him, Milan would pursue two players they have kept close tabs on.

Swiss forward Noah Okafor has been scouted by Milan regularly this season as they maintain a keen interest in signing him from RB Salzburg. The 22-year-old will enter the final year of his contract in Austria at the end of the season and has already expressed interest in moving to Milan.

Sassuolo striker Armand Lauriente is another name that has piqued the interest of the reigning Serie A champions. The Frenchman was brought in from Ligue 1 outfit Lorient at the start of the season and is currently on a five-year deal at the Italian club. Both players are priced similarly around the €20M mark and fall right within the Rossoneri‘s intended transfer range.
