Ghana's No. 1

Why Darwin Nunez is the perfect striker for AC Milan

Published on: 09 May 2022

AC Milan are looking for a striker to sign this summer and Divock Origi has been linked quite a lot with them. There are a few more names floating about, though, and Darwin Nunez is one of them. 

Nunez, who currently plays for Benfica, has scored 34 goals in all competitions this season and that is indeed very impressive. In a piece published last night, explained why he would be the perfect signing for Milan.

In fact, there are a few factors that make him perfect for Stefano Pioli's system at Milan: his power in counter-attacks, ability to play at speed, desire to press the opponents, ability to score also with his head and his runs in-behind make him a great No.9.

Above all, though, he knows how to find the back of the net when presented with an opportunity in front of goal. The price tag, especially after this season, is hefty. Benfica will ask for at least €70m and there are many other clubs in the running, but Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are at least interested in Nunez.
