AC Milan’s pursuit of a new striker for next season continues, and they have begun talks with the entourage of Feyenoord’s Santiago Gimenez.
According to Calciomercato.com, there was a meeting between the Rossoneri management and the agents of Santiago Giménez yesterday. The 22-year-old striker was signed from Cruz Azul in Mexico by Feyenoord for €4m last summer, and has scored 23 goals in 44 games.
His impressive performances – which fired the Rotterdam club to the league title – could see him leave in the summer. In the Europa League he faced both Roma and Lazio, against whom he scored 3 goals in 2 games.
His asking price has gone up to €20m and he is also attracting the interest of Lazio and Atletico Madrid, but Gimenez has a contract until 2026 with Feyenoord which means they have the leverage in negotiations.
In the event of a concrete attempt by Milan, it could be Divock Origi who is sold given that at the moment there is a strong interest from Fenerbahçe in the Belgian.
Either way, Milan are looking for a young striker to alternate with Giroud, and Gimenez’s agents have come forward.
Let’s be honest, we’re not getting him
True. We will end up with Arnautovic most likely.
He is the best fit policy to sign him
Items of Cost
Amd Goal scoring
And the age
Sigm him until he is goje in High Price
would be a perfect profile, yes seems to be not affordable for us but as said i am still happy about the profile, scamacca or okafor would have been next 100% flops this for sure
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar was banging goals season after season in Eredivisie. And how did he do in Milan? Exactly… Pretty much same applies to Eredivisie than to Turkish league. Borini is 2nd best scorer in that league. Does it mean he’d score 20 in Italy as well? LOL.
Van Basten too…look at how that turned out. What’s your point? At some point these things are all risks clubs take..some pan out, some don’t
We need a guaranteed scoring machine. Not another CDK.
