Mediaset: Milan like Jovic and Depay but €25m striker could arrive in three-way deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have three names on their wish list as they look to reinforce the attacking department in January, a report claims.

According to SportMediaset, Luka Jovic of Real Madrid above all is the main target and Memphis Depay of Lyon is the first alternative as Milan look to bolster the attacking options available to Stefano Pioli by recruiting a deputy to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

However, the report adds that Milan are also following Gianluca Scamacca, a 21-year-old striker owned by Sassuolo and on loan to Genoa. The Rossoneri club want him in January, which is why on Sunday afternoon the player was the topic of the conversation between the Rossoneri and the Neroverde managements.

There is a lot of competition though as Scamacca ended up in the sights of Fiorentina and Roma, while Sassuolo want €25m to sell the Italy U21 international.

For Milan it would be an investment for the immediate but also an investment for the future, given his young age. Genoa meanwhile would like compensation as they would be losing a key player in a moment of danger, but Milan could offer Lorenzo Colombo and Mateo Musacchio to them in a sort of three-way deal.
