Okafor the latest addition in AC Milan’s summer spending spree
MILAN (AP) — Switzerland striker Noah Okafor is the latest addition in AC Milan’s summer spending spree.
The Rossoneri announced on Saturday that Okafor signed a five-season contract following a transfer from Red Bull Salzburg that was reportedly worth 14 million euros ($15.5 million).
Okafor joined fellow arrivals Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tijjani Reijnders — who all have signed with Milan after former captain Paolo Maldini was let go as sporting director.
The 23-year-old Okafor is expected to back up Olivier Giroud at center forward. He scored 34 goals in 110 appearances with Salzburg, winning four Austrian titles and three Austrian Cups.
