In addition to the Champions League, Milan and Inter fight for the same four goals

Ahead of preparations for the second leg of the Champions League semi-final, Milan and Inter could also be set to do battle in the transfer market, as the two clubs are said to be monitoring the same four targets.

Both teams are widely reported to be in the market for a new striker.

For the Rossoneri, it is an opportunity to take the pressure off 36-year-old Olivier Giroud after the failure of Divock Origi, while the Nerazzurri are looking for a long-term partner for Lautaro Martinez.

According to Il Quotidiano Sportivo, the two clubs are said to be interested in signing talented Italian Mateo Retegui from Tigre, where he currently tops the Argentinian league’s goalscoring charts for the 2022/2023 season.

Another option in attack for both sides is 23-year-old Belgian striker Lois Openda from Lens, who has notched up 19 goals in his debut season in Ligue 1.

There are also two young players in Serie A that both clubs are interested in, namely Giorgio Scalvini of Atalanta and Tommaso Baldanzi of Empoli, aged 19 and 20 respectively.
