The AC Milan management are continuing to plan how the attacking department might look next season with a striker and a right winger needed.
According to Claudio Raimondi who spoke live from Milanello on SportMediaset (via MilanNews), Samuel Chukwueze is moving further away from the idea of joining Milan because Villarreal do not intend to give any discounts.
They are asking for €35m to sell the winger and – given that his contract expires in one year – the Rossoneri deem that figure to be too high.
That is why the track leading to Gustav Isaksen is gaining momentum. He had 31 goal contributions last season and could arrive from FC Midtjylland for €10-12.
In addition to Chukwueze being a difficult pursuit, the journalist added that the Alvaro Morata hypothesis is fading due to the high costs of the operation when factoring in transfer fee and salary.
Should Isaksen arrive, the Rossoneri could then secure the signing of Mehdi Taremi from Porto, who is valued at €20m and could be an alternative to Olivier Giroud.
