CorSport: Milan have been in talks over €20m Fiorentina striker for weeks – the situation

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have held talks over the past few weeks regarding Fiorentina striker Arthur Cabral and could be laying the groundwork for a move, a report claims.

As reported today by Corriere dello Sport (via FantaCalcio), Cabral could become a serious target for Milan. Talks have been going on since the beginning of June meaning it not a brand new idea but in the coming weeks it could become more concrete.

At the moment Lorenzo Colombo is playing in the friendlies in the United States, but it is clear that the former Lecce man intends to go to another side to find more playing time.

Thus, the Cabral idea has emerged again. Fiorentina won’t sell Luka Jovic in the summer window, but for the Brazilian striker they would accept a bid in the region of €20m.

The negotiation is open, although it is not an operation to be closed immediately but possibly later in the window. The parties will update shortly, to understand if a lower price could be accepted, and the freeing up of an extra non-EU slot helps.

Goal Brasil reported last month that the Rossoneri have secured priority in the event Cabral is sold. No document was signed, but a pact was made between the two presidents Paolo Scaroni and Rocco Commisso.

They stated that La Viola refused the request at first, but ‘gave in to the attacks’ in January, and the agreement means Milan will be consulted in the event of a formal offer from another club. However, his agent attempted to pour cold water on the idea.

The 25-year-old scored nine goals for Fiorentina last season across all competitions, with eight of them coming in his 28 league games.

  1. Is cabral the guy we need? Not saying he’s a bad player but does he stand out for certain attributes? Seems a strange target as he’s not that young and not likely to be an outright starter.

    I guess it depends on the fee but this doesn’t seem like an obvious target to pursue.

    1. Okafor is useless? Yes because you have seen him play already? And you want us to sign a 31 year old striker for 30 million euros? Yeah no.

    2. That’s laughable, Okafor is young and physical beast, he gave our defense a hell of a lot trouble when we faced them and would bully many of teams that play ultra defensive and slow paced football in the league. Not to mention his experience in Europe as he’s been consistently playing European football for the past couple of seasons as he’s been playing for longer than most of our young players. 10 goals and 5 assists in 38 games in European football puts him on the same level as Leao who has 9 goals and 9 assists in 35 games. That’s valuable experience right there.

  2. No way. This guy can’t hit a barn door. Reminds me of Kalinic. Florentina have had issues with him finishing chances.

    1. It seems that Amrabat wants a massive salary increase, especially considering his agent wasn’t happy with the offer Man Utd tables and that says a lot.

  3. I don’t want to see that Cabral of a guy even supporting us talk more of playing, I’d rather Columbo leads the attack than him
