CM.it: Milan monitoring situation of striker PSG paid €35m for amid lack of game time

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could revive their interest in Hugo Ekitike given that he is barely playing for Paris Saint-Germain at present, according to a report.

Calciomercato.it report that Milan are likely to go for a new striker next summer given that Zlatan Ibrahimovic could retire at the end of the season while Divock Origi has not made a great contribution thus far, plus Lorenzo Colombo and Marko Lazetic must be allowed to grow without pressure.

The identikit set is familiar: Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara want a young centre-forward who already has experience playing at a good level. Ekitike was followed in the summer by Milan before PSG swooped to sign him for €35m plus bonuses (via Wiki), but things have not gone to plan so far.

The 20-year-old has made 12 total appearances, of which three were in the Champions League, for a total of just 273 minutes overall. That is an amount that does not satisfy Ekitike himself, despite the fact that he arrived at PSG aware of the competition.

PSG boss Christophe Galtier and the PSG management have no intention of letting him leave, not even on loan, but it is reasonable to imagine that without a change in situation Ekitike could ask to leave.

The Rossoneri could thus strike up their interest again, but they would only move if they know they could get him on more than just a temporary basis. Things will become clearer when league action returns.
