Milan will be looking to bolster their frontline in the summer and are zeroing on Noa Lang and Divock Origi. The Rossoneri have been after the two forwards for a few weeks and have good chances to see their pursuits come to fruition.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Club Brugge starlet has leapfrogged all the other targets for the role. Their brass especially appreciates his versatility. He has mostly featured as a left-winger at Bruges, but he would likely feature regularly on the right flank if he joined. The front office will have to decide on Junior Messias’ €5.4M option to buy after the season. Plus, the future of Ante Rebic is not that certain considering his continuous injuries.
Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, and Liverpool are also chasing after the starlet. However, Milan appear to have gained an inside track for Lang, as they have done with Origi. They have already met the youngster’s agents a couple of times. The Belgian side will ask for at least €25M to sell him. The Rossoneri will try to lower the fee, but they are willing to make an offer around those numbers.
At this stage, Milan are closer to acquiring Origi than Lang. They do not need to discuss with his current side, Liverpool, as he would move at the end of his expiring contract. The parties are reportedly in advanced talks. The Rossoneri could seal the deal in short order if they decided to raise their proposal a little, SportMediaset informs.
