CM: Milan want a quality striker in addition to Origi – the dream and an alternative

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking to give Stefano Pioli an even more competitive squad ahead of the 2022-23 season and they have some names in mind, a report claims.

Of course Milan will enjoy the Scudetto celebrations over the next few days but Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are continuing to think about how to improve this squad even more. reports that the transfer of ownership will not affect the work of the transfer market, with work already underway.

The first signing will be Divock Origi as the 27-year-old Belgian striker will leave Liverpool to wear the Milan shirt. He should sign a four-year contract for around €4n net per season including bonuses.

However, the work on the centre-forward role will not stop only at Origi, because Maldini and Massara are at work to sign a quality number 9 for the future. Darwin Nunez of Benfica is the ‘forbidden dream’, while Sebastian Haller of Ajax is a possibility to follow.

    1. I’m a Real Madrid fan but my brother is big Milan fan 🙂 Forza Milan❗
      I hope, that Darwin Nunez go to us & Leao stay at Milan.
      I think Milan must buy very good right winger – I think Antony from Ajax or Raphinia from Leeds or Di Maria for free will be good options.

    1. Agreed. He’s already 27, still playing in a smaller league and only now showing up on bigger clubs’ radars? Sounds like a flash in the pan.

      1. Wow, that is just wrong. First of all, you do get that leagues don’t become “small” the moment you leave the Big 5, right? The Eredivisie is number 7 in UEFA coefficients, just after the Big 5 and the Portuguese league. If you think there’s no quality in the Eredivisie, why do you think Ajax won all 6 of their group stage games in the UCL this season? And if Ajax were that dominant during the group stage, now consider the fact that PSV had a chance to win the league up until the second-to-last matchday.

        Second of all, some players are just late-bloomers.

        And lastly, Haller was the top scorer of the Champions League group stage. Among ALL teams and all players. He scored 4 goals in his first UCL game for Ajax.

        He is quality.

  1. I don’t think we need another striker. We need a playmaker and right winger. Left back backup.. before even mention another striker.. we currently have .. Giroud, origi , the new boy we got, the teen striker from the youth team and rebic. That’s enough

  2. They should go all out for Joao Felix. Darwin Nunez is vulnerable. Joao can create history at Milan.

  3. After what we have seen during the past 3 seasons, I would say, “I trust Maldini and Massara at their transfer targets and plans”.
    These men have a great eye for talents. They somehow dig up struggling youngsters and lit a fire in their hearts.
    I hope we will continue this way. I want to see Milan not only buy starts but create new ones.
    I especially love the ones who shone wearing our colors. Also, I wish to see Maldini Jr. starting his role in Milan’s life. I think it would be a great pride for his father.

  4. Agreed. Ricky and paolo are doing incredible jobs finding this young talents, imagine what they could find with better funds.
    this is the start of an era and Leao, Tonali, Calabria, Tomori and Kalulu are the hearts of it, i hope Daniel improves and writes his own legacy with Milan along with these incredible young players Just like his father and grandfather before him.

  5. Agree, trust Maldini and Massara; but I have to comment on some of the above posts about Haller not being quality or that he is “still playing in a smaller league” — wow, please educate yourself.

    Haller was in bundesliga for multiple years and had great success with Frankfurt (Rebic was his teammate) and they won a big trophy (Pokal) together. Then he spent a few years with West Ham in Premier League (have you heard of bundesliga and PL? They’re not small leagues).

    And the Dutch league is just about on par with the Portuguese league — though you seem to think Nunez’s league isn’t “small” while Haller’s is.
    Haller led the Dutch league this year in goals.

    Not to mention the fact that he had 11 goals in Champions League this year and scored in SEVEN STRAIGHT CL matches — first person to ever do that and only 2nd person after Cristiano Ronaldo to score in all 6 group stage matches.

    Oh, and 27 isn’t old — he’s in his prime.

    If Maldini and Ricky believe he has the right profile then he would be great for us.
