AC Milan are one of the teams that are in the running to sign Stade Rennais striker Georginio Rutter, according to a report.
According to a report from Calciomercato.com – which cites L’Equipe – the Rossoneri are one of a number of top European clubs keen on signing the 18-year-old centre-forward.
Arsenal, Newcastle, Lyon, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Leipzig have long set their sights on Rutter, who has been a regular at virtually every youth level in the French national team.
The French market has returned to being taken into serious consideration by the Rossoneri management, following the arrival of Rafael Leao in the summer of 2019, as well as the rumours linking the club with Boubakary Soumaré of Lille and Wesley Fofana of Saint-Etienne.
Rutter’s contract expires in 2021, and he is described in the article as a modern striker with a good physique, but above all in possession of an excellent ball technique.
Naturally left-footed, he knows how to shield the ball with his back to the goal, but also loves to vary on the whole front and constantly look for one-on-one opportunities.
In short, the potential is all there, but Rutter is looking for a club that will give him the opportunity to show off what he can do immediately, and seeing Pierre Kalulu’s move and subsequent preseason playing time might give Milan an advantage in the race to land the player.
