The Champions League has always been one of the most important showcases for various talents around Europe, and AC Milan will use the competition to keep an eye on some players.
According to Calciomercato.com, a huge number of scouts and observers will be at the Estadio Da Luz stadium to follow Benfica versus Red Bull Salzburg tonight, two teams who are known for producing and developing talent.
The report mentions that Milan will have a scout present to watch two players above all. The first is Roko Simic, the son of Dario Simic who is a former centre-back for the Rossoneri.
His son plays as a centre-forward and he is a big unit at 1.90m tall. Paolo Maldini was an admirer of his, but chief scout Geoffrey Moncada is following him, as well as Sassuolo.
The other player that has caught Moncada’s eye is Tomas Araujo, a central defender who was the captain and leader of Benfica in the UEFA Youth League final they won in 2022.
After a year on loan at Gil Vicente, he returned to Lisbon to carve out some playing time, and the Rossoneri scouting department are keeping an eye on him.
