Report: Milan reignite interest in Serie B striker as asking price is slashed – player wants move

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ready to make another attempt to sign Gianluca Scamacca as Sassuolo have dropped their asking price, a report claims.

The 21-year-old is on loan at Serie B side Ascoli from Sassuolo and has scored seven league goals this season. Milan have been repeatedly linked with a move as they look to reinforce their attacking department with young talent.

Pietro Balzano Prota of Radio Rossonera claimed on Twitter yesterday that Scamacca – who was the top scorer in the Coppa Italia for this season – is a player that chief scout Geoffrey Moncada is a big fan of, with contacts still underway with his entourage continues over the possibility of a move to the San Siro this summer.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.it, Sassuolo have dropped their asking price from €18-20m six months ago to €15m including bonsues.

The player wants to join Milan who would like to close the operation outright, but they will have to find agreements with Sassuolo and must also wait for the approval of the next head coach, likely to be Ralf Rangnick.

There is also the interest of medium-high end Premier League clubs, but Milan still remain in pole position, the report concludes.
