Manager Vincenzo Montella and his Milan look to struggling West Ham striker Simone Zaza for attacking reinforcement.
Since Italy striker Simone Zaza moved from Juventus to West Ham last summer, things have not gone according to plan. Zaza has failed miserably to not only score goals but recently, receive substantial playing time. Both are clear indications that The Hammers wish to sever ties with the Juventus-owned forward prematurely, but must find a solution for all parties during the January Transfer Window.
Zaza will no doubt end his stay in England early and return to Turin this month, but is unlikely to stay long. Massimiliano Allegri has several forwards in his attack, not to mention Marko Pjaca returns in a few weeks which makes this department over-encumbered.
The Azzurri striker has been linked to a Valencia move for weeks, but with Cesare Prandelli stepping down after nine-matches, that likely rules out the Spanish club from adding the 25-year old. With Valencia all but out as an option, Sportmediaset now claims that AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella is keen on taking a flyer here, hoping to help Zaza reclaim the form that made him so promising with Sassuolo and Juventus.
Like all deals, the Rossoneri will have to get the approval from incoming ownership group Sino-Europe Sports before any signatures can be acquired.
