AC Milan are desperate to sign a new centre-forward this summer and have two names on their shortlist at present, a report has claimed.
According to Wednesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as cited by MilanLive), the two names in question are Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic and Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik.
The former fits perfectly in line with the project that the Rossoneri’s owners Elliott Management Corporation wish to deploy as he is just 22 years old. His value is between €40-50million at present though, and his salary of €5m-a-year is also too high for the club’s ideal parameters.
The Serbia international would have to take a pay cut to secure the move, and the intentions of the player will also be fundamental as he may wish to stay and prove himself in Spain.
Meanwhile Milik – a name that has long been linked to Milan – always remains in the background. At 26 years old the Polish striker is pushing the limits regarding the youth project, but in return he would bring quality and a very valuable international experience.
The situation is also known: his deal expires in 2021 with Napoli and he has decided not to renew. The problem, if anything, is that the Neapolitans will demand a big fee to let him go – around €40-50m so therefore the same as Jovic.
