Serie A trio queue for RB Salzburg striker Noah Okafor

Juventus, AC Milan, and Lazio have all been linked with the possibility of making a move for the 23-year-old Binningen-born forward after a successful four seasons with the Austrian Bundesliga juggernaut.

RB Salzburg striker Noah Okafor could be set for a massive leap in his footballing career after reports link a trio of Serie A giants with interest in a summer transfer for the Swiss international.

According to reports from football insider Fabrizio Romano, Juventus, AC Milan, and Lazio have all been linked with the possibility of making a move for the 23-year-old Binningen-born forward after a successful four seasons with the Austrian Bundesliga juggernaut.

Okafor reportedly first garnered considerable interest from Milan after the club squared off against his Austrian employers during the Champions League group stage, with manager Stefano Pioli pushing for the club to make a possible move.

Both Juventus and Lazio are also keeping tabs on the Swiss forward, with both club’s looking for long-term solutions through the middle of the forward line due to the potential summer departure of Dušan Vlahović from Turin, and the aging of club icon Ciro Immobile in the eternal city.

Salzburg has already bid farewell to Slovenian starlet Benjamin Šeško this summer after the 20-year-old made the leap to parent club RB Leipzig, with the loss of the second of their leading partnership potentially coming at a significant cost to their plans on the pitch.

Okafor has bagged 25 league goals across 71 appearances for the club, while also hitting 6 goals in 24 European appearances.
