One of the big issues that AC Milan must address this summer is the signing of a new centre-forward, and Gianluca Scamacca’s name is gaining momentum.
According to this morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Milan are active on various fronts such as the midfield which needs to be rebuilt after Sandro Tonali’s exit and with Ismael Bennacer injured.
However, a new striker to help Olivier Giroud is of paramount importance and Scamacca is a name on the list. There is strong competition from Roma – the club and the city he grew up in – but the Rossoneri have revived their interest in the last few hours.
The Rossoneri management have even offered Divock Origi to West Ham in an exchange deal of sorts. The Belgian forward was disappointing in his first season with and could be used as a counterpart, with several admirers in the Premier League.
It is no mystery that Scamacca would prefer to return ‘home’ to Roma, but it is also true that he has requested a solution soon and this could help Milan, with the Giallorossi in need of liquidity to relaunch.
Meanwhile, the path that leads to Boulaye Dia should not be underestimated either. The Senegalese striker scored 16 goals for Salernitana last season and has a clause of €25m until July 20. His agents say Milan and Fiorentina have come forward.
