AC Milan are not fully content with just the signing of Divock Origi and are searching for another centre-forward, a report claims.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that while a certain calm filters from Casa Milan about the striker role, the Rossoneri management are still conscious of the fact they have a 36-year-old in Oliver Giroud, a teenager in Marko Lazetic and a striker who has been a back-up for a few years now in Origi.
Gianluca Scamacca of Sassuolo remains on Maldini and Massara’s wish list because they know the importance of having a young centre-forward who could help Giroud and Origi and learn from them, giving quality depth in a role that is key with the ambitions being to defend the Scudetto and go further in the Champions League.
However, his Sassuolo team-mate Giacomo Raspadori is also in the viewfinder of the Milan management and he is a profile that is appreciated because he is able to play both as a striker and as a playmaker.
Then there is a whole host of players capable of playing as a false nine like Charles De Ketelaere of Club Brugge and Nicolo Zaniolo of Roma. Finding a concrete alternative to Scamacca is not an easy task, which is why the idea of relying on Origi or looking for other internal solutions such as Ante Rebic could end up being the approach chosen, thus allowing funds to be used elsewhere.
