Milan have zeroed in on Serhou Guirassy to shore up their attack, but despite his manageable release clause, they still face big obstacles to sign him. On top of the burgeoning competition, his wage requests are sizeable, Calciomercato informs.
The Rossoneri touched base with his camp a few times. One of their directors even traveled to Germany for direct talks. His entourage asks for a €4M net salary.
Milan will need to decide quickly whether to activate his €17M release clause, as the fray to onboard Guirassy will keep intensifying as the January window progresses. The striker added more goals to his tally in recent weeks. He’s now up to 17 in 14 Bundesliga matches.
While the Rossoneri have been monitoring the market to find a new backup striker and Olivier Giroud heir, the recent major injuries suffered by Fikayo Tomori and Tommaso Pobega might force them to revise their plans.
Our Take on Milan and Guirassy
His demands are legitimate since he’s not a prospect and the next one will be the first, and perhaps last, big contract of his career. While they’d save on the price tag, the deal would still be quite expensive. Luka Jovic is finally hitting his stride, and while he’s not a long-term solution, they can make do with him and Giroud, especially after being eliminated from the Champions League. They should delay addressing this position until the summer since they have gaping holes in other ones.
