Milan Set Large but Not Humungous Budget for Striker

Milan have been canvassing the market for a new no.9 and, regardless of other moves, they are ready to spend about €50M for a young and prolific center-forward. If it happens, it’ll be the most expensive striker in the history of the club. However, it’s not sure the sum will be enough to acquire some of their targets, La Gazzetta dello Sport relayed.

The Rossoneri are extremely keen on Joshua Zirkzee, who returned to form versus Roma. However, his situation is very intricate due to a pair of clauses in favor of Bayern Munich, which can bring him back for €40M. His price tag is higher for other teams and would grow if the Premier League powerhouses pursued him.

Viktor Gyokeres is likely to transfer to Englans for a fee exceeding such a threshold. The valuation of Feyenoord’s Santiago Gimenez might also be higher already. Instead, it coincides with Benjamin Sesko’s release clause. He’s the greenest option on the Milan wish list.

The Rossoneri believe the budget would be more than enough to persuade Lille to sell Jonathan David, whom Napoli are chasing after intensely as well.

Our Take on the Milan Strategy

Zirkzee would be perfect, but there are many factors at stake concerning his future. They’ll have to be very patient and determined to be successful. The figure might not suffice for a super duper player but will surely fetch a quality one. It should be taken with a grain of salt, though, as it’s much higher than their previous coups.
