The strong performance of Mohammed Kudus has not gone unnoticed at AC Milan. According to Tuttosport it is likely that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will end his professional career after this season at the age of 41. I Rossoneric In that case, they have to look for a replacement and have their eye on the 22-year-old Ghanaian.
If Ibrahimovic actually hangs up his shoes after the current season, then trainer Stefano Pioli only has the currently 35-year-old Olivier Giroud and Divock Origi. Charles De Ketelaere is mainly used as number 10. Tuttosport writes that the Italian top club is looking for an asset with a similar profile to De Ketelaere: a young player who has experience at the highest level. Milan is reportedly willing to pay up to 40 million euros to welcome a possible successor to Ibrahimovic.
According to the Italian sports newspaper, Kudus and Rasmus Höjlund are at the top of Milan’s list. The nineteen-year-old Danish striker of Atalanta has been in the picture for some time, but Pioli and the club management decided to strengthen the selection in other positions during the recent summer transfer window. In addition to Höjlund and Kudus, Former Vitesse mercenary Armando Broja is also on the Milan shortlist.
The strong performances of Kudus at Ajax have therefore not gone unnoticed at Milan. The originally Ghanaian midfielder has been used as a striker by trainer Alfred Schreuder in recent weeks and fills this position properly. This season, Kudus has already scored seven goals in ten matches across all competitions. Last Tuesday he once again drew attention by scoring beautifully at Anfield against Liverpool (2-1 loss).
