AC Milan are prioritising a move for a forward this summer, mainly a striker, and apart from Olivier Giroud, they are now also targeting Ukraine's flying forward Roman Yaremchuk.


According to a report from Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan are looking at Yaremchuk as a possible option for the summer.


The Gent forward has thrived with Ukraine at Euro 2020, scoring twice and grabbing an assist in just two games, forming a great partnership with Andriy Yarmolenko.


Milan have opted for a loan with an option to buy, but Gent are not willing to accept those terms as they want to cash in on Yaremchuk as soon as possible.


The Belgian side are reportedly targeting a €25 million fee for the Ukrainian after his brilliant performances on international duty.


While Gent had an one and off season, the 25-year-old has thrived on a personal level, scoring 23 goals and providing eight assists in 43 games in all competitions for his club.


Yaremchuk joined Gent from Dynamo Kyiv in 2017 for €2 million, and with his contract with the Belgian side running until 2025, they will want a hefty fee for them to sell him this summer.


Milan want Chelsea's Giroud this summer, but signing Yaremchuk could be another great signing, especially with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic being their only options up front, with the latter two not being natural strikers.
