Newcastle have been linked with prolific Dutch striker Myron Boadu since this past February. The 19-year-old has had a breakout season for AZ Alkmaar in the Eredivisie bagging 20 goals in all competitions while adding 13 assists.
In March, just before the coronavirus brought football to a screeching halt, a report claimed that Alkmaar would allow Boadu to leave if they received an offer of £18m.
A report from Italy claims that the Boadu’s agent, the infamous Mino Raiola, is shopping the striker around for an even lower fee of between £13.5-16.5m.
According to the report, Raiola is trying to tempt AC Milan into launching a bid for the Dutch international, who still has three years left on his contract with Alkmaar.
AC Milan are reportedly close to appointing former RB Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick to replace Stefano Pioli this summer.
Milan will be looking to bring in a striker or two with Zlatan Ibrahimovic only contracted until June. No decision on the Swede’s future has been made yet.
Milan also sold former Newcastle target Krzysztof Piatek to Hertha Berlin in January. So if Ibrahimovic ends up elsewhere, they’ll only have Rafael Leao on the books from this year’s squad though they do have several strikers out on loan currently.
There’s a lot of upheaval going on in Milan at the moment so it may not be the best landing spot for the up and coming striker.
So if our prospective new ownership group rate Boadu, hopefully, they’ll have a chance to move for him this summer.
