Mediaset: Monchengladbach striker is Pioli’s dream for the attack – €35m asking price set

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are dreaming of signing Borussia Monchengladbach star Marcus Thuram to help reinforce the striker department, a report claims.

Bild recently reported how his exploits over the past couple of years have attracted the interest of Milan and Juventus who are ready to challenge two top European clubs who want him in Barcelona and Manchester City.

It is also worth mentioning that Thuram recently admitted to supporting Milan while growing up to go against his father, while he has also been picture wearing a Milan shirt in the past.

According to the latest from SportMediaset (via MilanLive), head coach Stefano Pioli has identified the newly-capped French international as the ideal reinforcement for his attacking department.

The former Guingamp star would be happy to join a Serie A club, but it won’t be easy for the Rossoneri to get a deal over the line as he has a valuation of €35million plus there is competition from clubs in England and Spain.

Milan have one eye on signing a potential long-term replacement for Ibrahimovic, but also a player who can rotate with him this season and offers certain guarantees.
