Milan target speaks of his admiration for Leao: “He is a fantastic player”

By Ben Dixon -

AC Milan have been widely linked with signing a new forward in the upcoming summer mercato, and one of the club’s preferred options has openly admitted his admiration for Rossoneri star Rafael Leao in a recent interview.

All roads lead to Milan investing in a new striker at the next chance to do so. However, the budget for the signing has not been confirmed, and this will be affected by any major outgoings. If a sale of a high-value player was sanctioned, it could open up several possibilities in the market to explore – one of those options could be Viktor Gyokeres.

The Swede gained the interest of several European clubs last summer after a great season in the English Championship. Since then, though, he has continued to improve at an incredible rate, and another move this summer is feasible.

The Rossoneri’s interest began to be reported in November, and since the links have continued to grow. Nevertheless, they are not the only club interested in him, with Arsenal also heavily interested in the 25-year-old.

Following Portugal’s clash against Sweden on Thursday evening, where both Rafael Leao and Gyokeres scored, and the pair exchanged shirts, and the Swede spoke of his admiration of the winger in his post-match interview to – his words have been relayed by MilanNews.

What are your thoughts about Rafael Leao?

“He is a fantastic player, and I admire his work. We talked a little bit, but nothing special. He just told me that I did well, and I told him that he didn’t do badly either.”
