Milan put Leao on the market

Milan must sell Rafael Leao in order to refresh their attacking options, with Everton, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Olympique Marseille interested.

The Portuguese striker just turned 22, but his time at San Siro seems to be up after two disappointing campaigns in which he had occasional highs, but was largely anonymous.

He played in numerous different roles, failing to particularly convince in any of them, and Milan need at least one other centre-forward who can help 39-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic in squad rotation.

Calciomercato.com note that Leao is the player who’ll be sacrificed to raise funds, though it’ll be tricky to recoup the €28m paid to Lille in 2019.

Even more concerning, Lille are owed 20 per cent of any future transfer as part of the deal.

It’s reported that Everton and Wolves are interested in snapping up Leao, with a potential return to Ligue 1 for Olympique Marseille too.

Leao made 40 competitive appearances for Milan this season, scoring seven goals and providing six assists.
