Alfredo Pedulla is reporting that AC Milan are continuing to monitor Sassuolo owned striker Gianluca Scamacca. The 21 year old has been playing for Ascoli on loan in the Serie B this season. The youngster has 11 goals in all competitions with 7 in the league and 4 in the Coppa Italia. He has also played for the Italy U21 side where he has 4 goals in 8 appearances.

Pedulla is reporting that Milan consider him a concrete target and Ralf Rangnick reportedly is a fan of the striker and is keen on investments for players under 23. Milan have struggled in the attack this season as Piatek, Leao have been misfiring, Rebic has been inconsistent and Ibrahimovic is at best a band aid. Milan attempted to sign him in the January transfer window but missed out, another approach is expected.
