Following both Milanese clubs securing their spots within next year’s edition of the Champions League, the Rossonerri have set their sights on Manchester City’s attacking trident Riyad Mahrez.
So far this season, the Algerian international has been in sizzling-hot form as he managed to score eleven goals and provide five assists in 25 games played within the Premier League.
Despite proving to be a vital asset within Guardiola’s squad, it is very likely that his trademark within the squad will fade away as the Premier League giants are committed within the pursuit of the Norwegian marksman Erling Haaland.
With the 31 year-old’s contract with Manchester City set to expire in the summer 2023, Milan are assessing the situation extremely closely as they are eager in reeling him in to the San Siro ahead of next year’s campaign for a fee below his €65M market value, via Footmercato.
As it stands, Pioli is short on right wingers within his current squad as he only possesses Junior Messias and Alexis Saelemaekers. The acquisition of Mahrez would increase Il Diavolo’s depth and attacking quality, allowing them to be far more clinical within the final third of the pitch.
