AC Milan transfer news: Chelsea ace and prolific 282 career-goal forward on radar

Posted by

AC Milan missed out on Champions League football last season, and a major factor in their shortcomings was their lack of goals in the side.

The Rossoneri scored just 56 goals in 38 Serie A games, giving them the lowest tally of the top seven sides in the standings.

In order to make progress under Gennaro Gattuso next season, they’ll arguably have to address that issue in order to close the gap on their rivals, and it’s been claimed that they have solutions in mind.

According to respected Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Milan officials are keeping the door open with the representatives of Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata and Juventus forward Gonzalo Higuain.

Morata impressed in a previous stint in Italy with Juventus, although he struggled last season with Chelsea as he managed just 15 goals in 48 appearances for the Blues.

With that in mind, it’s questionable as to whether he’s the ideal option for Milan who need an immediate impact and a consistent goalscorer, which perhaps makes Higuain the more sensible option if he is indeed attainable.

The Argentine international has 282 goals in 556 games in his entire career, although he’s really found his goalscoring touch in Italy with 91 goals in 146 games for Napoli before bagging 55 in 105 outings for Juve.

Coupled with the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo this week though which could push Higuain down the pecking order in Turin, an exit could become a realistic option this summer despite the fact that he’s enjoyed plenty of success with Juventus over the last two seasons.

It remains to be seen who Milan are able to land this summer to bolster their attacking options, while it would also raise question marks over the futures of Andre Silva and Nikola Kalinic, as both struggled to score regularly last season and struggled to prove their worth.
