Tuttosport: The budget Maldini will have available to sign a striker in 2023

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will dip into the market to sign a new striker ahead of the 2023-24 season and the budget available to do so has reportedly been revealed.

Milan have some uncertainties about their attacking department that must be resolved next summer, because Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in his 40s and his contract expires next June, Olivier Giroud will soon be 36 and is also on an expiring deal and Divock Origi is battling injury problems that have limited his impact so far.

According to Tuttosport (via Football Italia), the ownership have already let Paolo Maldini know that he will be able to go out and invest a substantial amount on a new starting striker who guarantees goals but is also physically reliable too.

The paper claims that Maldini can expect a budget of €35-40m for a new striker next season and there are even some targets mentioned, such as Atalanta‘s Rasmus Hojlund – who is just 19 years of age – plus Ajax’s Mohammed Kudus and Chelsea’s Armando Broja.

  1. Get Okafor. Also provides the attack with pace.

    Broja Chelsea will want a discount on Leao they can go do one.

    Kudus needs to prove he isn’t injury prone and it was just growing pains.

    1. Okafor is okay if we sell Leao. He is a good winger. But there are FAR better wingers out there.. aka.. Mudryk. Otherwise.. as a striker, Okafor wont cut it, not a single other team cares about Okafor and neither should we. We dont need another dribbler whos goalscoring ratio is worse than a 36 y/o Giroud.

  2. Kudus is not even a striker he’s being played as a false number 9,they should look for a striker from the Brazilian league or wait a scout for one in the world cup tournament.

  3. All of those names.. arent good enough.

    Okafor? F* NO. Not a scorer.

    Kudus? Probably a one season wonder.

    Hojlund.. Dont know about him but a 19 y/o aint gonna be a milan starter for sure.

    There arent any good strikers available unfortunately unless we look into Sesko. But he is costly and probably far away from our reach unless Maldini pulls something out of his hat.

  4. Broja I agree Chelsea would want discount or trade but he’s good choice but no
    Hojlund is bought recently so he doesn’t have experience in serie A so no again
    Kudus is more CAM than a ST so no again

    Jonathan David it’s better option than all of these three players Or Patrick Schick.
    Plus Noah Okafor is more Winger than a ST so not in January but at the end of the season yh plus mudryk or Gakpo or madueke
