AC Milan plans to bolster their attacking unit in January if the right opportunity arises, with Serhou Guirassy the most recent name linked.
Calciomercato.com reports that Olivier Giroud is set to extend his contract for another season, through 2025. The management is expected to back the younger French striker who can ensure a return to goal scoring.
Geoffrey Moncada and Antonio D’Ottavio are working on a list of profiles that includes at least three or four other possible targets in addition to Jonathan David of Lille and Akor Adams of Montpellier.
Guirassy, a Guinean striker who plays for Stuttgart at the moment, is one of them. With 15 Bundesliga goals in nine games, the German club’s summer acquisition of him from Stade Rennais for €9 million has proven to be a huge success.
Guirassy has Milan’s attention even if he cannot be considered the main candidate. The €17m release clause valid for January represents another interesting component to things, and Moncada will decide whether or not to start a negotiation in the next few weeks.
