As AC Milan's season is in full swing, the Rossoneri are already looking ahead to next summer's transfer market in search of a new number 9.
The AC Milan club directors, Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara, have a particular liking for former Inter star Mauro Icardi and his unique skill set. The 30-year-old star from Argentina is serving a loan spell from Paris Saint-Germain at Turkish outfit Galatasaray. He has scored 9 goals and 6 assists in Turkey this season so far and his deal with the French giants expires in June 2024.
According to Daniele Longo on Instagram, it's best to exclude Rasmus Højlund due to an unreasonably high valuation from Atalanta. The rising star Folarin Balogun, who is on loan from Premier League side Arsenal to Stade Reims in Ligue 1, is one to keep an eye on.
It's worth noting that these are not negotiations already underway, but the AC Milan club management is beginning to shape the strategies for the future to see which player that the directors can be targeting to reinforce Pioli's offensive department.
