The AC Milan management are continuing to plan how the squad will look for next season and striker Lois Openda is on their list of targets, a report claims.
This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) talks about how the main signing for the summer and the one Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara cannot get wrong is that of a centre-forward.
Openda is one of the names Milan are looking at with the most attention as they search for a striker who is under 25 or experienced, physical or fast, tested or with room for growth. It is unlikely that the Rossoneri can spend €50-60m on a single signing, too.
Openda is admired because he is 23 years of age, is fast, shows good movement and finishing. In 2021-22 the Belgian scored 19 goals for Vitesse, and this season he has the same amount with RC Lens.
The centre-forward would like to play in the Champions League next year and could also do so with RC Lens – who are second in Ligue 1 – or at a new club. A valuation of around €25m is mentioned by the paper.
