AC Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis wants to begin building for the future by securing the signings of two talented young players this summer.
That is according to Wednesday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive), who claims that Gazidis is ready to try and swoop for a duo that have been on the wish list for some time.
The first name is Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, a dynamic and versatile midfielder who has been linked to Milan repeatedly by various outlets in recent weeks.
He would represent the first reinforcement of a midfield department that Milan will completely revolutionise in the summer, with the likes of Biglia, Bonaventura and Paquetà set to leave. Gazidis is ready to bid €20million for the 19-year-old Hungary international.
The paper adds that Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic is the other name, a player who has struggled since his €60m move from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer.
The Serbia international is considered the ideal heir of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and is a player who – like Szoboszlai – Rangnick particularly values.
Gazidis is evaluating a ‘Theo Hernandez-esque’ pursuit; that is to sign the 22-year-old for a discounted price or on a loan deal, then to make him a key cog in the machine for the future that he is trying to build.
