AC Milan will not be signing striker Emanuel Emegha this summer as he is heading to Ligue 1 side Strasbourg, according to a report.
French source L’Equipe reports that Strasbourg have beaten the competition from Tottenham and Milan to the signing of Emegha. The Dutch striker will sign for them this evening Sturm Graz, who will get €12m.
Emegha moved to Sturm Graz last August after some time in the Netherlands and Belgium. He played in Sparta Rotterdam’s youth team making his way into the first team, then joined Royal Antwerp and most recently making the switch to Austria.
Milan were linked with a move after apparently having had positive scouting reports on the 20-year-old, who showed his qualities in the Conference League in particular ending the season with 10 goals and 5 assists in 36 appearances.
However, multiple sources are now claiming that the Rossoneri have closed a deal for Red Bull Salzburg star Noah Okafor instead for a fee of €13-14.
