It is fair to say when Leeds United sold Caleb Ekuban for less than £1 million, they did not expect to see this Elland Road flop linked with a big-money move to a seven-time European champion less than 12 months on.
So it is to Ekuban’s eternal credit that he has bounced back in style from a forgettable spell in West Yorkshire, catching the eye of not only Lazio and Rangers but also the Italian giant that is AC Milan.
Crystal Palace’s forgotten man-turned-goal-scoring machine Alexander Sorloth is one option with Ekuban the other.
Alongside Sorloth, the Italy-born Ghana international has rediscovered his golden touch in the Super Lig, providing goals and assists aplenty in the city of Trabzon. And his price-tag has gone through the roof, too.
Milan may no longer be the relentless winning machine that dominated Italian and European football in a golden past but they remain one of the most iconic clubs in world football.
And surely Ekuban wouldn’t have to think twice about the prospect of making a name for himself at the San Siro.
