AC Milan

CM: Leao and Okafor could co-exist

AC Milan are working on the renewal of Rafael Leao but even if he does extend his deal the arrival of Noah Okafor would not be excluded, a report claims. report that the situation linked to Leao’s renewal is a delicate one that means the management do not want to be caught unprepared, which is why they are looking for a possible replacement, should the situation worsen.

The name atop the wish list of the Rossoneri management is that of Noah Okafor who scored against Milan for Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League earlier this season. However, the Swiss international is also attracting the interest of Liverpool and Manchester City after his good start to the season.

Milan have been working on the idea for some time and could try to sign him with or without Leao’s renewal because the pair could co-exist. Okafor is a left winger but he can also play as a striker having been up front eight times in 14 Austrian Bundesliga games this season, scoring 7 goals and providing one assist.

In short, the 22-year-old is a complete forward who can play all along the attacking trident. He has versatility as well as speed, the ability to beat his man with the dribble and the ruthless edge to hurt opponents in the open field.

Okafor’s characteristics marry perfectly with Pioli’s ideas therefore, especially considering that Leao has often played close to the striker this season to make him more dangerous, so the duo could form a duo that would be difficult for all Serie A defences to stop on the counter-attack, a solution that could also favour the inclusion of Charles De Ketelaere.

With two quick forwards like Leao and Okafor, the Belgian could do what he does best: operate in the space left and feed his attacking team-mates.
