AC Milan have identified AZ Alkmaar striker Myron Boadu as a transfer target, according to Calciomercato.
The teenager has been highlighted as a potential recruit to bring the side more goals, having begun to use his platform at Alkmaar to help the Dutch outfit with his finishing.
Despite being just 18-years-old and only making five starts and four substitute appearances in the Eredivisie before this season, as per WhoScored, Boadu has managed to make an impact this term.
He has scored six times and assisted another three in 10 league games, while he has also added two goals and an assist in three Europa League starts.
In comparison, Krzysztof Piatek and Hakan Calhanoglu have got three and two Serie A goals respectively this campaign.
It can be said that this outlines the shortcomings of Milan’s attackers more than anything else, with the whole team having a combined Serie A goal tally of nine.
Milan certainly need to do something to address their shortage of goals if they want to climb higher than the 13th spot they currently occupy in the league.
While Boadu has shown plenty of promise this season, signing a teenager in their breakout season to address these underlying issues can be seen as a risk for Milan.
Though when their current predicament is considered, it can be argued that risk-taking is exactly what they need to do. Furthermore, it would be hard to blame Milan for taking a gamble on the young Dutchman.
Will AC Milan qualify for the Champions League?
