ANOTHER INCOMING: Bid agreed and plan devised – Milan serious about landing German talent

The amount of outlets claiming that AC Milan are interested in signing Assan Ouedraogo appears to be growing by the day.

According to, Ouedraogo is a serious, tangible target for Milan. Geoffrey Moncada and Antonio D’Ottavio had him scouted for around 18 months and the reports were all positive.

The 17-year-old is already a regular starter for Schalke 04, having made nine appearances and scored one goal in the 2. Bundesliga this season (2023-24). Milan likes the player because he has a unique personality, an intimidating body, and excellent technique.

He excels at both short passing and long balls, travels quickly through the midfield, and possesses a game vision that, while still developing, already resembles that of a senior player.

He also fits Milan’s philosophy, as the club has always strived to grab young stars in advance, before their asking price becomes too high and competition becomes too fierce.

The Rossoneri began talks with Ouedraogo’s entourage months ago, promoting the notion of their client being considered for the first team within a couple of years and the possibility of a loan during that time.

A meeting with Schalke 04 will be set only after the agreement of Ouedraogo’s family, as the competition is so fierce that no one at Milan wants to rush.

The biggest threat to Milan is Bayern Munich, who, along with RB Leipzig and Liverpool, has already begun pursuing Assan Ouedraogo.

The Bavarians have long had a strong interest in young German talents, while Schalke may be willing to sell for €7-8 million instead of the €20 million release clause in order to avoid the risk of letting him go for free.

It is a decision that has Milan on high alert, as big news is expected in the coming days.
