Everton and Wolves told to fork out £50m Rafael Leao transfer fee by AC Milan with duo eyeing striker this summer

AC MILAN have reportedly slapped a £50million price tag on Everton and Wolves target Rafael Leao.

Calciomercato claims the Portuguese striker, 21, is a major target for Carlo Ancelotti and Nuno Espirito Santo this summer.

Former Sporting Lisbon and Lille forward Leao has netted seven times in 32 games for Milan this term.

And he could now be set for a stunning move to the Premier League.

Everton boss Ancelotti wants another attacker to help out Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison.

Leao is also capable of playing on the flank and could join Everton’s current forwards in a fearsome front three.

Meanwhile, Wolves have struggled to fill the void left behind by Raul Jimenez’s injury absence.

William Jose has failed to settle since his January loan from Real Sociedad.

And Fabio Silva is still looking to find his feet ahead of hsi 19th birthday in July.

But should either side make a formal move for Leao, Milan will demand big bucks.


Technical director Paolo Maldini believes Leao is a future Rossoneri superstar and is reluctant to sell.

Boss Stefano Pioli also views Leao as an important fixture in his starting XI and feels he can lead a successful charge towards the Serie A title next season.

But a sum of £50m could change Milan’s mind, allowing them to make a huge profit on the £25m they paid Lille for him in 2019.

The bonus cash would also be enough to turn Fikayo Tomori’s loan from Chelsea permanent thanks to an agreement in his contract.

The English defender has won over Maldini and Co with some excellent performances.

And Milan are eager to make sure Tomori remains at the San Siro past the summer.

Boss Piolo said: “We are so happy with Tomori, our plan with him is so clear.

“We want to confirm Fikayo and our plan is to keep him next season. Let’s see what happens with Chelsea.”
