Although it feels like the January window just came to an end, AC Milan are already working on their plans for the summer, with several players targeted. And given their recent success, a few players seem tempted.
The latest player to praise the Rossoneri is Timothy Weah, Lille forward and son of the former Milan man George Weah. In an interview with Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), he revealed playing for a club like Milan has always been his goal.
“Of course, I’m focused on Lille, but it has always been my ambition to one day play in a great league like Serie A and in particular for a big club like Milan, who is basically a part of my family history.
“Would my father like it? He never talks about it openly, but when I was a child there was the idea of playing for the Rossoneri’s youth teams. Things went differently, but maybe I will arrive at Milan anyway. In football, things go fast, and you never know,” he stated.
This season, the 21-year-old has made 23 appearances for Lille and he has registered four assists in the process. He can play on both sides of the attack and also as a centre-forward, which is always useful. He does, however, count as a Non-EU player as he had American citizenship.
It remains to be seen if Milan will respond to these comments by probing the ground, given that they seemingly have other targets in mind for now.
