Luis Muriel, who worked with Marco Giampaolo before, has been proposed to the Diavolo in the last few days.
New Milan coach Marco Giampaolo will be using a 4-3-1-2 formation at Milan next season, and so the club could be on the market for a second striker.
Some think that André Silva, who will be returning from an unsuccessful loan spell at Sevilla can fill this role, but Milan have a few names on their list for this position.
One of the names is Luis Muriel, who according to Milannews.it’s Antonio Vitiello, has been offered to the club recently. Muriel spent the second half of the last season at Fiorentina, scoring 9 goals in 23 games, but the Viola chose not to use their buy-out option, and is still owned by Sevilla. Before moving to Sevilla, he played for Giampaolo at Sampdoria scoring 13 goals in 33 appearances.
Maldini met Alessandro Lucci yesterday and the agent represents Muriel. Milan have still not given their answer on Muriel, but Pietro Balzano Prota says if a deal happens it’d only be loan + option.
