There is no time to waste at PSG. While waiting to know the identity of his future coach, the reigning French champion is scanning the market to build his workforce for next season. Officially arrived in Paris yesterday, Luis Campos has actually already started to work on different tracks. He is looking for a striker and has targeted Gianluca Scamacca, as we learned from the Italian press.
The Italian ticks a lot of boxes. He is still young (23 years old), and therefore has a good margin of progress, offers a different profile than the center-forwards who already constitute the Parisian workforce, is international (5 selections but no goal). He is even perceived as the present and the future of the Squadra Azzurra. Under contract until 2026 in Sassuolo, it will still be necessary to dislodge him from there because the Neroverdi will not sell him off.
AC Milan ready to match Sassuolo’s demands
After refusing an offer of €32m from Arsenal, the Italian club want €50m to let go of their player, who scored 16 goals in 36 Serie A matches this season. A price on which PSG can align, even if it will also be necessary to find an exit position for a player like Mauro Icardi, in order to lighten the workforce. Be careful all the same because other clubs are on the prowl and are ready to make efforts to also enlist Scamacca.
Interested for a moment, Inter finally made the return of Romelu Lukaku their priority up front. No, it is AC Milan that we will have to be wary of, explains The Gazzetta dello Sport this Saturday. Divock Origi arrives but rather in a substitute role, while Giroud and Ibrahimovic are no longer very young (the Swede is even injured until the end of the year). And then the Lombards are not sure of being able to keep Rafael Leao.
So many arguments which make the newspaper say that the Rossoneri are the only ones in Italy to be able to keep Scamacca in Serie A. Thanks to the Champions League and the Scudetto acquired last month, they have the financial strength. No offer has been sent for the moment but AC Milan would be ready to put the amount demanded by Sassuolo to have a regular scorer in its workforce. Paris is warned.
