AC Milan seem to be focusing on signing Serhou Guirassy ahead of the January transfer window as they look to acquire a new striker, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
Milan pursued a centre-forward during the summer window but it wasn’t until the end of deadline day that they managed to get a signing over the line and that was Luka Jovic. The Serbia international struggled in his first few months though he has rebounded well recently.
Nevertheless, reports continue to circulate suggesting that a new striker will be signed as early as next month given that Olivier Giroud has still had to work overtime and he is 37 years of age.
Di Marzio spoke on Sky (via Radio Rossonera) about Milan’s plans, and he revealed: “A defender will certainly arrive, if not two. Milan will also try to sign a striker: in recent weeks the focus has been on Guirassy.”
Regardless of the Jovic situation, Milan must consider the age and expiring contract of Giroud. Serhou Guirassy, with his 16 goals in 12 games, seems to be the chosen player at the moment.
