Milan close to signing RB Salzburg’s Noah Okafor


Serie A giants Milan are close to sealing a move for RB Salzburg star Noah Okafor.

Fabrizio Romano has reported that Milan are closing in on a move for the 23-year-old striker, with the Rossoneri said to be keen on signing a centre-forward this summer and have been linked with a host of names so far. But it looks as the Swiss star will be their signing that solves the issues upfront.

If everything goes to plan, he will undergo a medical with the Rossoneri on Saturday and personal terms between Milan andd Okafor are already said to have been agreed.

Okafor has an EU passport, which means that he will take up an EU spot in the side, with the Rossoneri still pondering about who takes the last non-EU spot. A deal for Samuel Chukwueze is close to being agreed but with a move for Okafor close to being sealed, it seems as if the Nigerian will take that slot as the other striker alternative on the club’s shortlist was Mehdi Taremi, who is another non-EU player.
