At 36 years of age, Olivier Giroud is AC Milan’s lone striker. The Lombardy club wants to change this by recruiting a player this summer to stand in for the French international.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, AC Milan have targeted three players as Oliver Giroud’s understudy. They are Gianluca Scamacca, Alvaro Morata and Lois Openda. West Ham are reluctant to sell Scamacca. This makes things difficult for AC Milan. Nevertheless, it is possible that the Milanese club could sign the former Sassuolo player on loan with an option to buy. Alvaro Morata, meanwhile, is available on the market. His market value has been put at 10 million euros, but given his age (30) and his playing time with Atlético Madrid this season, AC Milan could revise the price downwards. With his technical skills. Lois Openda is the top striker AC Milan could use. The Belgian has enjoyed a remarkable season with RC Lens, and is on the radar of several of Europe’s top clubs. The 23-year-old has a market value of €35 million.
