AC Milan were interested in signing striker Youssoufa Moukoko but two obstacles will make their pursuit very difficult, a report claims.
According to PianetaMilan, the Milan management are in the market for a new striker given that Olivier Giroud – who will renew until 30 June 2024 – is now 36, while there are doubts on the continuation of Zlatan Ibrahimović’s career and Divock Origi has not yet offered the right guarantees.
One of the profiles on their list ahead of the 2023 summer transfer market is Youssoufa Moukoko of Borussia Dortmund, whose contract is expiring meaning he will leave on a free transfer.
The German centre-forward of Cameroonian origin has refused to extend his contract with BVB because he wants €6-7m net per season to extend which is double the fixed amount the Bundesliga side are willing to put forward.
So far he has 6 goals and has provided 6 assists in 22 games for Dortmund this season, and while Milan have been watching his development he is more likely to end up in LaLiga or the Premier League for two reasons.
The first is represented by his salary demands, an amount Milan would only give to Leao if he were to renew. The second is the competition from Barcelona, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea.
