AC Milan are on the hunt for a new centre-forward and they seem to be keeping their options open having made a call about Alvaro Morata, a report claims.
Today’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as seen below) talks about how RC Lens striker Lois Openda appears to have become the new number one target of the management after numerous scouting missions, with an asking price set.
However, the paper adds that Morata is another forward that Milan have on their list, and someone at Milan has definitely made an enquiry about the former Juventus man over the phone in view of the summer.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara admire his profile, he has just become captain of Spain, he is not and never will be a prolific goalscorer but he knows about playing football at the highest level.
The next step for him will be to understand what his future at Atletico Madrid looks like. For Milan however the next step is to understand whether they will be in the Champions League, which brings a guaranteed extra €40m to the accounts.
It’s becoming clear that Maldini should stick to hiring defenders.
Hahaha, true 🙂
Morata is so frstrating to watch. I don’t want him in Milan.
Openda is too small. Our best strikers have always been tall.
No, no no. Another Torres moment
How many times have we tried to get him and he has said no year after year? He doesn’t want to be in Milan and quite frankly he is by no means the solution to our problem.
I feel this is click bait, this makes no sense whatsoever, given the costs as well as the fact that he is useless.
A good N10 (SMS), good right winger (Zaniolo), Experienced striker (Arnuotovic or Fermino) and a young striker with a high potential ceiling (Hojaland or Beto).
We would walk to the seria A title provided we retained our squad (get rid of Rebic, Origi and Adli)
I’d rather have Icardi – Someone who wants to return to Milan..
I would like Icardi just to see him tackle Calhanoglu, would be an iconic moment
This article so absurd. It says morata cannot and never become prolific striker, then why should AC Milan pay ATM transfer fee and give him high salary? Every time i see AC Milan linked with morata, i just want to laugh. I dont know what Maldini saw in morata
tall profile… that’s what maldini want
Oh no. And i admire those who don’t admire Morata.
“he is not and never will be a prolific goalscorer”
This alone should bury this (dead on arrival) idea. We’ve already got a striker who cannot score – Origi. Why get another?
