Milan were close to Serhou Guirassy in January, but they didn’t convince him to join. He’s more likely to head elsewhere in the summer. His low release clause, €17.5M, will remain valid unless Stuttgart get him to sign a new contract before the end of the season.
According to Fabrizio Romano (via Tuttomercatoweb), the Premier League is the most likely landing spot for the marksman. He hasn’t slowed down despite the transfer market chatter. He has bagged 19 goals and dished 2 assists in 16 seasonal appearances.
Despite direct talks, Milan didn’t manage to sign Guirassy in January due to his wage requests and reluctance to leave his high-flying team midseason.
The Rossoneri have seemingly moved on to other targets. They have been tipped to go after especially Joshua Zirkzee and Benjamin Sesko next summer. They are leaning toward retaining Luka Jovic but are still in the dark about Olivier Giroud, who’ll decide his future only at the end of the campaign.
Our Take on Milan and Guirassy
Despite his efficacy, he would have been an odd purchase as they like to go young. He would have been an awkward fit given their situation up front, as he would have come in as the top option, but they already have a good one. His affordable price tag keeps him in play should they miss out on the talents in their sights, who would be more expensive, but he would make sense only if Giroud didn’t stay.
