Noah Okafor is back on the radar of AC Milan, who are probing the ground for a transfer this summer. Ever since the Rossoneri faced RB Salzburg, the forward has been linked with them and there’s a reason for that.
In the first leg between the two sides in the 2022/23 Champions League group stage, Okafor scored the opening goal after a lovely solo run. Alexis Saelemaekers scored the equaliser and the game ended 1-1, but the Swiss international had already made his mark.
Milan have been linked with the 23-year-old for quite some time but up until last night, it had been very quiet on that front. As per Fabrizio Romano, the Rossoneri are probing the ground with Salzburg to understand the conditions of a potential deal.
In fact, Pioli has pushed for the player ever since that game in the Champions League. The only concern, perhaps, is that he’s not a ‘classic striker’ after playing in a front two at Salzburg. The likes of Juventus and Lazio are also interested in him.
