‘Milan like El Ghazi but…’

Adriano Galliani admits Milan “like” Anwar El Ghazi, but hints Alessio Cerci or Stephan El Shaarawy must leave first.

The Rossoneri have been linked with the 20-year-old Ajax talent, but must raise funds by selling players.

Luiz Adriano is set to join Chinese side Jiangsu Suning, but Stephan El Shaarawy is likely to return from his Monaco loan after the Ligue 1 side opted not to buy him.

In addition, Alessio Cerci has agreed a move to Genoa but the move is blocked by the objections by the Qatari investment fund which part owns him.

Speaking outside a Lega Serie A meeting, Galliani admitted to interest in El Ghazi, but hinted that El Shaarawy and Cerci would have to leave to make room.

“We like El Ghazi,” joint-CEO Galliani told assembled media.

“But if wingers don’t leave then we can’t do anything. Our transfer market is conditioned by departures.”
