Milan have not forgotten about Andrea Belotti but the distance from Torino’s demand remains high, as they continue working on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli are working non-stop and they’ve been trying to find the right profile to complete the attack, as despite spending €40m on Andre Silva, Milan boss Vincenzo Montella seems to want one more striker.
As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia, yesterday there was a new contact between Milan and Torino and the Rossoneri made a new bid, offering money plus Gabriel Paletta.
But the offer doesn’t meet the demands of Torino President Urbano Cairo. Di Marzio believes that il Toro would be willing to accept players in a possible deal, but would like M’Baye Niang or Gianluca Lapadula, in addition to a sum of money that is greater than what the Diavolo have offered.
Di Marzio adds that Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the top target at the moment, while Fiorentina’s Nikola Kalinić is in standby. La Gazzetta dello Sport expects Milan to speak with BVB next week as the clubs face off for a friendly in China on July 18th. The pink newspaper claims Milan are willing to offer €60m to the club and a five-year contract worth €7.5m yearly to Aubameyang.
Fassone and Mirabelli are working on several targets in parallel as they are trying to wrap up the deal for Lucas Biglia and also continue speaking with Leonardo Bonucci’s entourage about a possible move.
