Fabrizio Romano is reporting that AC Milan are in talks with the agents of Olivier Giroud over a free transfer for the experienced France international this summer. This deal mirrors the approach for Mario Mandzukic in January which is to bring in a veteran with good hold up play and a good eye for goal.
Sport Mediaset via MilanNews.it are reporting that there is a lot of optimism around the signing of the striker from Casa Milan on a two year contract worth 4 million euros per year.
Ekrem Konur is reporting on a two year contract worth 3.5 million euros per year for the 34 year old striker.
Nicolo Schira is reporting that an intermediary for Giroud has said to Calciomercato.it:
“He would be a good solution in light of Ibrahimovic’s conditions. Who would say no to AC Milan? Nobody, Maldini is a top director, he is working very well with Massara.”
MilanNews.it continue to reiterate that the management will also go in for a younger striker to supplement the attack and plan for the future this summer too.
