Sky: Arsenal and Lille duo are Milan’s ‘big dreams’ for the striker role

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are working on various fronts to improve the squad ahead of the new season and the signing of a new striker is of paramount importance.

According to the latest update from Sky, the Milan management have been offered the chance to sign Mehdi Taremi from Porto by his entourage but the asking price for his transfer fee is currently €20m.

While evaluations on the Iran international continue, there are other ideas being considered. There are currently two ‘big dreams’ which are ‘currently forbidden due to very high costs’ as per the report.

The first name mentioned is Jonathan David of Lille who scored 26 goals in 40 games across all competitions last season, and the other is Folarin Balogun of Arsenal who netted 21 goals in 37 Ligue 1 appearances on loan at Stade de Reims.

Both are widely reported to have high asking prices given the seasons they have just had, while Milan have other areas they must strengthen too even if they have just sold Sandro Tonali for a club-record fee.

  1. Is it true that AC Milan floated the money to Lille to pay of Leao’s saga? If so, didn’t Sempre Milan report before that the money owed could be used for a player transfer instead? Sounds like David could be affordable if you take off thr €20M owed?

  2. David and Pulisic could be pretty nice or too much of the same depending on how it is implemented. Still a player I‘d like to see in the team.

    1. Pulisic has been injured a lot even at Dortmund. I don’t know why people expect that to magically change one he joins Milan.

  3. The only purpose of these stories about strikers who cost 50 or 60 million is to somehow fill the pages of sports newspapers!

  4. Jonathan David is hell player he is better than overrated osimehen I’m sure Napoli will get him after when they sell osimehen

  5. JD have pricetag 60-65m euro , Balogun only 30-40m euro but cost nonEU slot. AC Milan still need 2DMF and 1 RW , cannot use all in budget for striker

  6. My grandmother – she is only 85 – might be a good attacker for milan. You can have her for 2 million euro. Furlani and Moncada …. please sign her …. she is a good girl, she is .
