CM: Milan still interested in AZ Alkmaar sensation linked with €20m Arsenal move

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are still interested in a move for AZ Alkmaar’s star striker Myron Boadu in the summer window, according to a report.

The Rossoneri’s owners Elliott Management have thus far deployed a recruitment strategy focused on buying young players with high potential and developing them in order to record capital gains on the balance sheet – with Zlatan Ibrahimovic the exception.

However the Swede could be set to end his second spell with the Rossoneri after just six months due to the chaos at corporate level, which has forced Milan to look for his replacement.

Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik continues to be linked by La Gazzetta dello Sport, but Calciomercato.com believe that Myron Boadu is a striker that Milan are following closely.

The stats speak for themselves with Boadu. At 19 years of age has 20 goals and 13 assists in all competitions this season and has established himself as one of the brightest and most promising all-round strikers in Europe under the age of 20.

He can also play as a left-winger, which shows the versatility that may make him someone that Rangnick may wish to bet on. Given his age and contract situation (until 2023), Boadu would almost certainly command a big fee, while Arsenal have been linked with a €20m move.
