The budget Maldini will have available to sign a striker in 2023


AC Milan will dip into the market to sign a new striker ahead of the 2023-24 season and the budget available to do so has reportedly been revealed.

Milan have some uncertainties about their attacking department that must be resolved next summer, because Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in his 40s and his contract expires next June, Olivier Giroud will soon be 36 and is also on an expiring deal and Divock Origi is battling injury problems that have limited his impact so far.

According to Tuttosport (via Football Italia), the ownership have already let Paolo Maldini know that he will be able to go out and invest a substantial amount on a new starting striker who guarantees goals but is also physically reliable too.

The paper claims that Maldini can expect a budget of €35-40m for a new striker next season and there are even some targets mentioned, such as Atalanta‘s Rasmus Hojlund – who is just 19 years of age – plus Ajax’s Mohammed Kudus and Chelsea’s Armando Broja.
