Milan and Benfica seek Scamacca

Milan and Benfica have seen initial offers for Gianluca Scamacca rejected, as Sassuolo are reported to want €20-25m.

The striker just turned 21 and is currently on loan with Ascoli, where he has scored 10 goals in 17 games between Serie B and the Coppa Italia.

He has four goals in eight caps for Italy at Under-21 level and is tipped for future success.

According to Sky Sport Italia, an opening €10m offer from Benfica was rejected outright, because the asking price is closer to €20-25m.

Meanwhile, Radio Rossonera also suggest Milan have approached Scamacca’s entourage to ask about his availability, and he’d be enthusiastic about the switch to San Siro.

It may well depend on whether the Diavolo can sell Krzysztof Piatek, with interest from Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Aston Villa.
