Striker Seeking Milan Revisiting West Ham Newcomer

Milan might keep both Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic next season, but they fully intend to add a young striker to their frontline. The 36-year-old is in advanced talks to re-up his contract. He’s fully expected to do so, even though it has taken longer than anticipated.

Per Calciomercato, Divock Origi and Ante Rebic might be on their way out in the summer. The Rossoneri gave the ex-Liverpool super-sub a long-term deal with €4M wages, but he hasn’t lived up to their expectations, partly due to physical problems. The agent of the Croat fielded some calls in January, especially from the Bundesliga, but the club asked for €15M to part ways with him.

Milan are keeping an eye on multiple prospects to find their striker of the future. They haven’t moved concretely for any of their reported targets. Mateo Retegui is well-positioned in their shortlist, but his valuation might increase significantly until June. They were after Vitor Roque, but his price tag has become unattainable due to the interest of Barcelona, Chelsea, and PSG.

The Rossoneri continue to keep tabs on Noah Okafor. They last touched base with his camp a month ago. Gianluca Scamacca, whom they probed before he joined West Ham, has resurfaced as an option, as he’s not having a very remarkable campaign. However, they’d have to spend about €45M to bring him back to Serie A considering what the English team paid to acquire him from Sassuolo.

Our Take on the Milan Search for a New Striker

It should and will definitely happen, but it’s uncertain how wealthy their budget for the position will be. If it’s Charles De Ketelaere-like, they’ll be able to target very intriguing options.
