GdS: Milan register interest in €10m-rated Ligue 1 forward but sales are needed first

By Oliver Fisher -

A new attacking target has emerged for AC Milan with the club set to miss out on Kaio Jorge of Santos, according to a report.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes that Juve seems to have definitively overtaken the Rossoneri in the race for the Brazilian and so the Milan management – on the search for a young striker to join two experienced players in Ibrahimovic and Giroud – have changed their target.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are now pursuing Randal Kolo Muani of FC Nantes and the French Olympic Team. The 22-year-old is admired by Milan for his physicality, his instinct as a centre-forward and also for his flexibility since he can be used not only as a striker, but also as a winger on the right having played their regularly two seasons ago when he was on loan at Boulogne.

His excellent performances have attracted the attention of several clubs besides Milan, such as Southampton, as he has 9 goals and 8 assists in 43 Ligue 1 appearances overall. His valuation is now around €10m, but that could be lowered as Kolo Muani has one year left on his contract with Nantes and for now the renewal has not arrived.

Milan are watching him carefully, but before making a new purchase they will have to make cash with some sales, such as Jens Petter Hauge or Rafael Leao.

    Why not just spend 6 mil on Jorge?!

  2. Sulecoach says:

    Jorge didn’t know europe like “kolo muani”
    i mean kaio jorge has less experience in europe as kolo did. Moreover kolo has full season remain for his cmtrack while kaio jorge has only five months to be free agent.

  3. Kourosh says:

    Who will be the next target?

  4. Il genio says:

    Yes! Spend EUR 10 MIL on Muani and avoid spending EUR 6 MIL on Kaio… There are alternative targets better than Muani (9 goals and already 22…)

    1. Juro says:

      LOL. Well said. We can’t spend t-6M on Jorge but can spend 10M on this kid? We are fkn embarrassing

  5. Rossonero Vero says:

    Why do we keep “pursuing” players if we do not intent to meet the asking price in order to buy them?

    So, our target is a 22y.o. dude, with 9 goals in 43 matches… a real killer! Did I meantion he costs double more than Kaio Jorge?

    Is there any lower we can drop?

  6. Rosso says:

    So to buy him, sell Hauge or Leao? crazy
