AC Milan transfer target Memphis Depay is on the market for a ridiculous low fee with Lyon ready to sell him in January.
“If there are opportunities, we will not be caught unprepared”. Paolo Maldini openly declared the transfer strategy of AC Milan. There is a need for new signings but they will only arrive if there are important opportunities.
Stefano Pioli, however, is in full emergency, in defense and also in attack, with yet another injury to Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swedish striker was injured after yesterday’s training and risks staying our for as much as four weeks.
The Rossoneri are in search of a back-up for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Arek Milik is the name that excites the fans while Scamacca of Genoa is a more concrete option. And then there are the dreams but well within reach like Memphis Depay with Lyon ready to sell him at a bargain price.
The Dutchman is an old transfer target of AC Milan. Mirabelli tried to sign him a few years ago while Leonardo was also interested. In the past Lyon wanted high fees but times have changed. With Memphis set to become a free agent at the end of the season Lyon have put him on the market for just 5 million euros.
Barcelona coach Koeman remains interested in his services but Barca can’t sign new players without selling first. AC Milan have the great chance to sign one of the best player of Ligue 1 for just a fraction of his real price. According to transfermarkt, Depay’s real market value is €45 million. This season Depay has made 15 appearances with Lyon scoring 7 goals and providing 4 assists.
