AC Milan want to repeat ‘Operation Brahim’ to sign Arda Guler

Serie A giants AC Milan reportedly want to repeat ‘Operation Brahim’ to sign 19-year-old Turkish prodigy Arda Guler from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Spanish outlet SPORT, Arda Guler is the subject of interest from AC Milan. The Serie A giants are keen on signing a productive midfielder in the summer transfer window. And they want to repeat ‘Operation Brahim’ by landing the 19-year-old Real Madrid prodigy on a loan deal.

The Arda Guler story

Arda Guler had to bide his time before establishing a foothold in the first-team squad at Real Madrid after arriving from Fenerbahce in a deal worth €20 million last summer. Fitness issues plagued the Turk for most of the 2023/24 season, with Carlo Ancelotti easing him back into the thick of things after he regained fitness.

The 19-year-old managed only 440 minutes of game time across 12 outings in all competitions for Real Madrid in the 2023/24 season. However, Guler made his mark in those 12 appearances, finding the back of the net six times. In addition, the youngster was a standout performer for Turkiye at UEFA Euro 2024, chipping in with one goal and two assists in five games.

However, Arda Guler’s situation at Real Madrid is dicey, with widespread reports linking him with a potential loan exit in the summer transfer window. Several well-known clubs are interested in signing the Turkish international, with Liverpool recently submitting an enquiry for him. He has now emerged as a target for AC Milan.

Serie A move on the horizon?

AC Milan’s interest in Arda Guler is understandable. The Rossoneri made a few clever midfield signings last summer, with Tijjani Reijnders and Ruben Loftus-Cheek making their mark at San Siro in the 2023/24 season. However, the Serie A giants want to sign a productive midfielder in the summer transfer window.

So, Guler has emerged as a viable target for AC Milan, with the Rossoneri keen on repeating ‘Operation Brahim’ to take the 19-year-old Turkish prodigy to San Siro. The Serie A giants want a loan move for the Real Madrid prospect in the summer transfer window.

However, a loan move will unlikely see the light of day, with widespread reports claiming that Real Madrid will not entertain any offers for Guler in the summer transfer window. So, AC Milan must look elsewhere, with the Turk not going anywhere.
