AC Milan are being forced to evaluate other options because their pursuit of Samuel Chukwueze has stalled, according to a report.
Calciomercato.com confirm that Chukwueze is the name at the top of the wish list for the right wing role but at the moment the €35m asking price set by Villarreal is deemed too high by Milan for a player whose contract is expiring in June 2024.
Milan are pursuing alternative paths as a result and one of these leads to Gustav Isaksen, who scored twice against Lazio in the Europa League last season and netted 22 goals (plus nine assists) across all competitions.
The Dane is under contract until June 2025 with Midtjylland but the Rossoneri have reached a verbal agreement with them on the basis of a transfer fee at around €10m.
However, the negotiation has not yet closed, purely because of the fact that Milan still want to wait and see if they can make a breakthrough in the Chukwueze talks.
