Journalist claims Milan are still very interested in Sassuolo striker with €20m price tag

By Isak Möller -

Milan are scanning the market for a striker as they need a name for the future, considering that the 2021/22 season most likely will be Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s last. It’s one of the priorities for the summer, therefore. 

Several names have been linked with the Rossoneri over the last few months and it’s clear that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are indeed working on it. As reported by Niccolo Ceccarini, in his latest piece for TMW, Gianluca Scamacca is still a target.

There haven’t been that many rumours about the Sassuolo-owned striker lately but as per the journalist, he remains a hot option for Milan. The Neroverdi would like around €20m to part ways with the 22-year-old, although higher fees have been mentioned.

It remains to be seen which striker Maldini and Massara will opt for in the end, but more news on the matter should arrive after the season. If UCL is secured, then the budget will obviously be higher.

    No thank you. Vlahovic please first choice. Or at the very least Edouard from Celtic. No Samacca. Not worth it.

  2. Moon says:

    @Juro, Zlatan is getting old, I guess next year he can play no more than 20 games. Scamacca + an additional striker (Vlahovic or Belotti) would be a good Idea.

    1. Bunga2 says:

      Too many strikers IMO, we just need one. After all we don’t play with x-x-2, but x-x-1, so will only need one striker (Zlatan) and his understudy). In case both are injured, then Rebic is more than capable to fill in for a bit.

    2. Juro says:

      I agree we absolutely need a starting striker as we cannot count on Ibra to play more than half the games at best so we need a starter. I just don’t think Samacca is that player and like Bunga2 said – we probably don’t need 2 and prob won’t spend $$ on 2 new strikers when Rebic can play there for short period if needed and even Leao in emergency. So we are only gonna buy one striker I would love it to be Vlahovic but he may be too expensive – is so we should get Edouard from Celtic…I just think there are better options at that price for – Edouard (20M) – than yo pay that for Samacca. All IMO

      theres no need for 2 strikers. if we play 2 strikers, diaz/rebic can be SS, maybe even leao. dunno about scamacca, but any player below leao quality is a waste

  3. Spooky says:

    In my opinion win win solution would be Belotti
    He is Milan fan, he prove his value in Seria A perfect age 28 for marure striker and price tag will not be high as for Vlahovic

  4. Harris says:

    Honestly, I think Vlahovic is overrated. Just get Belotti. He offers instant guarantee. Vlahovic is another Piatek.
