PM: Maldini moves to reinforce Milan’s attack – €38m playmaker and Chelsea forward targeted

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Paolo Maldini wants to secure two new signings to raise the quality of the squad’s attacking options, a report claims.

This season the Rossoneri have shown that they are strong and that with a few additions they can really compete with everyone. According to PianetaMilan, Maldini has been working for some time to improve the squad, studying new signings, and he already has in mind the plan to succeed. However, it will be necessary to understand what will become of players like Hakan Calhanoglu, whose contract is expiring and who received a big offer from Qatar that he is reflecting on.

Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul is the first choice target should the Turk leave, and in the summer the Argentina seems destined to finally make the big leap into a top club. Milan are at the window and the request from Udinese is €38m – a figure the Rossoneri could pay for a player who would raise the quality of the attack.

Another signing that the club deem really necessary is that of a striker who can alternate with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swede’s constant injury problems means a high level player who can guarantee almost the same performances is needed, which is why Milan seem very interested in Olivier Giroud. The Frenchman’s contract with Chelsea is about to expire and therefore would arrive on a free transfer. Milan has already initiated contacts and is ready to satisfy him on his salary demands.

    Gazidis said only young players. And we have ibra(wish he was 25) kajer (good solution for substitute but not a starter)and mandzukic(funny signing). Now we want giroud? For what? For experience? Hehehe
    Get a top scorer and generally top players and stop gambling with free agents and 20 years old players. Milan becomes smaller than Udinese roma and torino. Wake up. I am tired from this sick situation

      If you are willing to pay a fee for them they will get it.

      If Kjaer is only a good substitute, I doubt your scouting talents and would never thrust you with a few million to buy a player. Kjaer has been one of the best defenders in Serie A since joining Milan. Giroud would be a very good signing. Go find some Youtube movies to convince yourself.

    Hakan is not consistent, so De Paul will be good as replacement.

    Giroud isn’t bad if you ask me though, highly underrated.
    I wouldn’t mind having him, plus his playing style kind of similar to Ibra.
