AC Milan were one of the top European clubs to have a scout present to watch Benfica striker Darwin Nunez in action recently, according to a report.
There is a lot of speculation doing the rounds suggesting that that the Rossoneri management will look to reinforce the attacking department with a strong centre-forward for the future during the summer transfer window, even though Olivier Giroud is going through a purple patch and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s future remains uncertain.
According to A Bola (via Calciomercato.it), Milan had a scout present to watch 22-year-old Benfica striker Darwin Nunez score during their 3-1 win away against Tondela. However, so were representatives from Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United.
Nunez is having a fantastic season with 21 goals in 26 appearances across all competitions, but the Lusitanian club will not sell him for less than €50m, which would make him their third most expensive sale after Joao Felix who went to Atletico Madrid for €120m and Ruben Dias who joined Manchester City for €68m.
The Uruguay international is also aiming to be the top scorer in the Portuguese league, with 16 goals in 17 games at an average of 0.94 goals per game.
