Tuttosport: Milan will have chance to watch rising Atalanta star up close on Sunday

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking for the striker of the future and will get the chance to watch Rasmus Hojlund up close on Sunday, a report claims.

Today’s edition of Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan) recall how Atalanta invested €17m to sign Hojlund from Sturm Graz in Austria and he seems to be adapting to life in Italy well given he has seven goals across Serie A and the Coppa Italia.

Ahead of the summer, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara know that they will not be able to go out and get a striker that would cost €60-70m and that is why a profile like Hojlund could be ideal for the Rossoneri.

Club scouts have followed the Dane in recent months, even before he arrived in Bergamo and he was playing in Austria, so Hojlund could be among the options for the summer. However, if he keeps impressing then Atalanta may ask for more than €50m in June to sell him.

Either way, Sunday’s meeting between Milan and La Dea at San Siro on Sunday night will provide a chance for the management to watch up close.
