Huge threat to Giroud!

The Italian media do not agree: while AC Milan was said to be on the trail of an additional center forward to accompany Olivier Giroud, the Lombard club could also break the bank for a new scorer: the Lensois Lois Openda.

I’AC Milan is in total uncertainty. The 2022 Italian champion went from 5th to 4th place in Serie A on Monday evening with the new withdrawal of points from Juventus (-10 units). A qualification in the Champions League would upset Paolo Maldini’s plans for the summer transfer window. Without C1, the Rossoneri will not go crazy, already very happy to be able to keep their attacking star Rafael Leao.

In order to compete Olivier GiroudTHE Corierre della Sera recently mentioned the names of Gianluca Scamacca (West Ham), Alvaro Morata (Atlético), Marko Arnautovic (Bologna), Noah Okafor (Salzburg) and Roberto Firmino (Liverpool). A shortlist of attackers not necessarily very expensive (or even free like Scamacca on loan and Firmino free) who would alternate with the French international at the forefront of Stefano Pioli’s training.

Openda at a “low” price?

But, in the event of a European jackpot, AC Milan would like to offer the services of Lois Opendathe Belgian centre-forward of the RC Lenswho is having a superb season in Ligue 1 (19 goals), according to the Gazzetta dello sport. The sports daily specifies that the Milanese club will not spend 50 or 60 million euros on a single player. However, for Openda, the Blood and Gold can very well claim 40…

Openda, 23, has everything of an overpowered goalscorer and AC Milan, if he manages to recruit this player who could panic a lot of Premier League clubs, would suddenly get his hands on a new holder. Giroud, who will be 37 next season, would then become a luxury understudy. Which probably won’t prevent the 2018 world champion from bringing his stone to the building as much with goals as with his discounts and his defensive activity.
