The AC Milan management want to push for the signing of Papu Gomez from Atalanta, a report claims, but Elliott Management do not share their enthusiasm.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive), Gomez is a name that teases Maldini as he is set to leave Atalanta next month due to a fall out with Gian Piero Gasperini, and he is now considering the various offers that arrive.
The Rossoneri are in the front row, but there is a problem: besides the stiff competition from other clubs, the main obstacle appears to be Elliott.
For now the price is €15m as Atalanta are not willing to terminate the 32-year-old’s deal, and the American ownership does not like expensive operations for players over 30.
Gomez would find a use at Milan as he can cover any of the positions behind the striker in Stefano Pioli’s 4-2-3-1 system, and if the renewal negotiation with Hakan Calhanoglu goes wrong, the Argentine would be a perfect replacement.
Despite this, Elliott would prefer to invest €15million on a young profile with potential, and not for a player who is going to in theory start declining soon.
Gomez wishes to stay in Italy where Inter, Roma, Napoli and even Juventus are keen, while from abroad Paris Saint-Germain are very interested in the situation.
Elliot is going to have to swallow it just like they did with Zlatan and kjaer.
We need experience players not chickens. We need players who knows what do to at a difficult time and Elliott should remember that we need champions league to get more money
