Okafor unsure of next destination amidst Milan, Chelsea rumours


RB Salzburg striker Noah Okafor says Milan have a ‘legendary history’ but can’t choose between England, Spain, Italy or Germany as his next destination.

The 22-year-old is one of the hottest commodities in Europe and has been linked with a number of European clubs, including Milan and Chelsea.

“Whether it’s England, Spain, Italy or Germany, every league has a special charm, when there will be something concrete, we’ll assess it,” the versatile striker told La Gazzetta Dello Sport ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League match with the Rossoneri at San Siro.

Milan need a win or a draw to qualify for the Round of 16 for the first time in nine years. The Serie A giants collected a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture in Austria last month.

“Milan are a strong team, a club with a legendary history. It’s always nice to face the Champions of Italy,” said the Swiss international.

“I am looking forward to the game, there is a lot to play for, but we’ll get to Milan without pressure.

“We are not obliged to win,” the striker continued.

“Our target was to compete with strong sides, we are happy to continue our path in Europe although the Champions League would be better.”

Okafor has scored nine goals in 19 appearances with RB Salzburg this term, including one against Chelsea, Milan and Dinamo Zagreb. His contract runs out in 2024. Overall, he has bagged 33 goals in 97 matches with the Austrian side.
