AC Milan Join Race For Nigerian Striker

AC Milan have placed Samu Omorodion as a potential alternative target to Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee.

Omorodion, who spent last season on-loan at Deportivo Alaves and who measures currently has a contract at his parent club, Atletico Madrid, until 2028 and will be viewed as a low cost alternative to who is currently valued at around €40M.

Serie A sides Napoli and AS Roma have also expressed interest in the 20-year-old.

As was reported on Thursday, Milan chiefs continue to be locked in a tug-of-war with Zirkzee’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, over a €15M commission demand.

Latest reports in La Gazzetta dello Sport claim that the Rossoneri are becoming increasingly frustrated and are now ready to look elsewhere.

Omorodion, a Spanish Under-21 international, joined Atletico in 2023 in a €6M move from Grenada and scored nine goals for Alaves last season in the Spanish top-flight.

Milan are looking to bring in talented youngsters that they can nurture whilst keeping the wage bill to a minimum and Omorodion fits the bill perfectly.
