Fichajes: Milan to battle Barcelona and Spurs for prolific Nigerian striker

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are one of three clubs that have shown an interest in signing Gift Orban as their striker for the future, according to a report. write how Barcelona have been looking for a possible long-term replacement for Robert Lewandowski for some time and the management have wrapped up the signing Vitor Roque from Flamengo.

However, it is the young Nigerian striker Gift Orban standing out above the rest as another potential addition. The 21-year-old is currently at KRC Genk in Belgium and is turning heads around Europe after he scored 15 goals in 16 league games last year, while he has 6 in 10 so far in 2023-24.

However, Barca are not the only club that have taken note of his exploits. The source claims that Milan and Tottenham are two sides who could battle the Blaugrana, given the former’s need to replace Olivier Giroud and the latter looking for Harry Kane’s heir.

  1. This guy shouldnt come to milan if you dont want our coach to deem you not ready and sluggish! as a result destroying your confidence and career… the sluggish and shy de ketelere has just scored his second goal for atalanta in the europa league which he couldnt even score 1 for a whole season under the genius pioli! what a dumb of manager we have on our hands..

    1. Bro, they’re also playing him as a second striker in a two striker formation. That’s his natural position. Not as a 9 in the single striker formations (4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1) that we use. Not as a winger in those same formations. Not as a playmaker. Second striker. That’s what he is. No surprise that he is scoring. He never should gave been bought because he is not the type of player we needed. End of story. Let him go.

      1. That’s why 37 year old Giroud is the only striker even though he participated in the transfer decisions hence approving Okafor and jovic yet they get benched and couldn’t even score yet we concede 7 goals in 4 games…. he is so dumb that he doesn’t even know what he wants, are you telling me he want not consulted and his opinion and analysis based on the player position reviewed by him before the player was bought? He knew about it bro, trust me and go and write this down if we manage to come 4th in the table this season, that will be a miracle…beaciae pioli is known doe his survival objective for the season….

  2. Get him in the winter Mercato and straight into the team. Giroud can then be back up, as he warms down to a nice life in the MLS.
    I don’t think anyone here yet has delusions of a second star, even at this early stage, so it will set the ground for next season’s assault.
