Gabriel Martinelli to replace Rafael Leao, who could depart from San Siro before the transfer window shuts. The Brazilian attacker has two years left with Arsenal and is reportedly valued at around €40-50 million.

AC Milan have made an indifferent start to their defence of the Serie A title. The Serie A champions only managed a draw with Sassuolo on Matchday 4, with some of their attacking talents on the wings proving to be underwhelming. Moreover, they could lose one of the main stars before the summer transfer window shuts down.

Rafael Leao’s future remains in doubt, with Milan fruitlessly attempting to renew his deal. The Rossoneri value him at more than €100 million, with some specific interest coming from the Premier League.

At that price range, only a handful of clubs can afford to sign the Portuguese international, named Serie A player of the season for 2021/22. Chelsea are reportedly considering making an offer, but it may have to be pushed to the latter stages of deadline day.

 

The Brazilian, along with fellow countrymen Barcelona’s Emerson Royal, Sao Paulo’s Igor Gomes and Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jnr were all names that were discussed by the Serie A champions.

Martinelli did struggle for game time under manager Mikel Arteta last season and it will be hoped that the teenager remains patient rather than agitating for a move elsewhere.

The 19-year-old burst onto the scene at the start of the 2019/20 campaign, when Unai Emery was still Gunners boss, but the Brazilian picked up a knee injury last summer, just after ‘Project Restart’, which kept him out for a number of months.

Martinelli returned to action in December but he made just seven Premier League starts in total, and ended up scoring just two goals in 22 appearances.
