AC Milan are closely watching the development of Sassuolo forward Hamed Junior Traore, according to a report.
The brace he scored against Atalanta showed that Traoré is in great form and he now has 7 goals for the season with 4 assists to add to that. Calciomercato.it report that he is in the sights of Milan as well as Roma.
Traoré began as a central attacking midfielder but he is now gaining a reputation for a player who can drift out to the left or the right, potentially making him a very useful and versatile player.
Either Milan or Roma, or both, will have to deal with Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali who is a tough negotiator when it comes to talents they have developed. At the moment there are no negotiations involving the Rossonero or the Giallorossi but requests for information have begun.
Sassuolo’s hope is that an auction will be unleashed and in the meantime Traore’s agent Antonio Imborgia is looking for the best project to enhance an extraordinary talent. However, he could cost €30m or more especially if the red-hot form continues.
