CorSport: Milan targeting Italian defender and €50m ‘dream’ striker in the summer

By Ben Dixon -

With the January mercato in the dying stages and any avenues for deals in the remaining hours looking slim, AC Milan have already begun thinking ahead to the summer for which deals they want to explore.

As reported by Corriere dello Sport, Milan will look to add at least three reinforcements in the summer, with the main points of interest being a new striker, a new midfielder and another central defender.

This doesn’t come as a shock, given the persistent rumours about signings under these categories, with most linking back to a move in the summer. A lot of the targets that have been linked to signing this month have been loanees – some with options to buy in the summer, others not.

For the central defender, there is Alessandro Buongiorno, the Torino defender, who never turned the Rossoneri down this window. When the club offered him a deal, he only said he would not force a move out of respect for his current club instead of refusing a move.

Whilst a renewal for Olivier Giroud will be considered, the club will still look to add a striker to their ranks in the summer. Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee is a target, as is Jonathan David, but it was revealed the Canadian is not the number one option.

Instead, the Diavolo dreams of Benjamin Sesko. He would cost more than €50million and has been heavily tracked by Geoffrey Moncada, dating back to Paolo Maldini’s time at the club.

  1. Alessandro Boungiorno showed that he wants to come to Milan,
    Khephren Thuram, a top player, 22 years old should not cost much because his contract expires in the summer of 2025,
    Joshua Zirkzee, along with Haaland, is the most complete striker in the world, those three players can be brought for 100 million, and we have a young team full of talent with some players who are 25-26-27 years old who have been here for 4-5 years, we have a bright future

    1. I admit that I’ve only seen Zirkzee a few times but to put him on the same level as Haaland is ridiculous. Did you see him miss an open goal twice against Milan?

      1. Did you also see his technique & how he evaded Gabbia prior to the shot? Zirkzee not only plays football but also feels it, which is a rare talent.

        Now show me players with the same level of composure.

  2. Both of them would be a dream scenario, but that is also why it wont happen. Wishful thinking from the journalists at CdS.

    1. Wet his pants!?
      Did you watch the game?
      You do realize that he scored a goal and bullied Milan players over the entirety of the game?

  3. Buongiorno should be our immediate first buy, cuz he’ll be a key piece for years. Then a striker to replace Giroud, hopefully someone that actually has proven they can score close to 20 goals a season, and isn’t already 32+

  4. Santiago Gimenez is still my dream striker scenario. Sign Giroud as a mentor/sub for him. Sign Gimenez and we have a Striker for the future. Then we have Pulisic, Leao and Gimenez up front for the next 6 years,
