Outlining Milan’s strategies for the attack: the strikers set for exit, Zaza the priority

08 August at 12:46
AC Milan’s attacking department is going to be subject to huge changes before the end of the transfer window.
West Ham have finally persuaded Carlos Bacca to join the club. The Hammers have offered € 30 million to AC Milan and a € 4 million-deal to the Colombian striker who is going to confirm his decision in the next few days.

As we exclusively reported last week, Porto are also going to make an enquiry for a rossoneri striker, namely Luiz Adriano. A meeting between the two clubs will be hold in a few days time when AC Milan will ask € 11 million for the Brazilian striker.

Another player set to leave the San Siro is Alessandro Matri who is being heavily linked with a move to Sassuolo as the neroverdi have just sold Nicola Sansone to Villareal. Eusebio Di Francesco’s side are also chasing AS Roma winger Juan Manuel Iturbe.

Once they’ve offload these three strikers, AC Milan will make contact with Juventus for Simone Zaza. Scorer of the winner in yesterday’s West Ham clash, the Italy International is the rossoneri priority target for the attack. Juventus’ asking price is € 25 million, but with the player who wants to join AC Milan to get more game time, AC Milan hope that both him and his agent will persuade the Old Lady to lower his price-tag.

We are definitely going to know more about this negotiations in the next few weeks.
