Two High Profile Players From AC Milan's Seven-Man Striker Shortlist Revealed
AC Milan are on a mad one this summer. Not only have they secured the signing of Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus, but the Italians have brought in the free-kick specialist Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Andre Silva from Porto.
In addition, Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez and Franck Kessie joined the club within the space of a week and the club have been linked with a flurry of top European talent in recent months, including Renato Sanches from Bayern.
In recent weeks, AC Milan CEO Marco Fassone has publicly spoken about transfer rumours.
Last month he told Milan TV via ESPN: "Many names have been mentioned of very strong strikers. We would like to have one from Belotti, Morata or Aubameyang."
Fassone has now spoken about a 'seven man shortlist' during an interview with Sky Italia, revealing that he wouldn't say no to both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Radamel Falcao.
When asked if Zlatan and Falcao were transfer options, Milan's CEO said: "We continue talking about a striker, but must use our time wisely.
"We're working on it, there mustn't be any sense of haste, as we don't want to make a mistake."
"So far I haven't said no to any of the names that have been mentioned, and I won't say no to Falcao either, but among the six or seven names that have been suggested we've been closer to some than others,"
"The doubt we had was whether to make such a significant revolution of the squad or a gradual growth, but Massimiliano Mirabelli and I made this courageous decision and we hope it was the right one.
"We see this as not a one-year project, but over two or three years."
Last week, the big spending Italians were quote 'curious' about having Cristiano Ronaldo among their ranks, according to Sky Italia.
The report went onto to claim that Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes told Milan chiefs that the former Manchester United winger would cost £179 million. He also said his client would demand £550,000-a-week in wages.
