Tuttosport: Maldini plans Hauge-esque operation with Milan left impressed by Celtic star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are keen on signing Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard as they look to bolster the attacking department, a report claims.

There continues to be an abundance of speculation in the media regarding whether Milan will move for a new centre-forward in January to provide cover for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and allow him to manage his work load more.

Tuttosport (via MilanNews) believes that it is an area the management will look to strengthen and among the targets is Odsonne Edouard of Celtic. The 23-year-old played and scored against the Rossoneri in the group stages of the Europa League at San Siro.

That particular game allowed technical director Paolo Maldini and the rest of the management to see the player up close, and the paper speculated that Milan could repeat what they did in the summer with Jens Petter Hauge, who was bought by the Rossoneri from Bodo/Glimt immediately after the Diavolo had faced the Norwegian team in the Europa League preliminaries.
