AC Milan’s scouting department have once again set their eyes on France and have a young Metz midfielder in the viewfinder, a report claims.
Milan’s owners have so far preferred a recruitment strategy centered around buying young players with high potential to develop and record capital gains on the balance sheet. Recent recruits like Theo Hernandez, Rafael Leao, Ismael Bennacer, Sandro Tonali and Jens Petter Hauge among others are a testament to the fact that Geoffrey Moncada and the scouting/data team always have their eye on emerging talent.
As reported this morning by today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the Milan scouting team have put a new profile on the table for directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara in Pape Sarr, an 18-year-old Metz midfielder. The young Senegalese talent has a rather high value of between €15m and €20m, having played 22 times in Ligue 1 last season, scoring three goals.
