AC Milan are one of four clubs interested in the idea of signing Sassuolo-owned striker Gianluca Scamacca, according to a report.
The Rossoneri’s owners Elliott Management have so far stuck to a recruitment strategy centered around bringing in young players with high potential who can be transformed into stars.
Milan spent €70m in January on Krzysztof Piatek and Lucas Paqueta, while Theo Hernandez, Rade Krunic, Rafael Leao, Ismael Bennacer, Leo Duarte and Ante Rebic arrived for a combined €90m in the summer. The oldest of those players was 25.
According to seriebnews.com, another young player has entered the crosshairs of chief scout Geoffrey Moncada in Gianluca Scamacca, a striker currently on loan at Ascoli in Serie B from Sassuolo.
The 20-year-old played at Roma and PSV’s academies before moving to Sassuolo, and is already a part of the Italy U21 national team.
He has six goals in less that 600 minutes of league action this season in the second flight, attracting interest from Milan as well as Inter, Juventus and Arsenal as a result.
However, the report does mention that Sassuolo have plans to involve him in the first team next season, suggesting they are not in any mood to sell a prized asset.
