AC Milan have a number of names on their list as potential heirs to Zlatan Ibrahimovic amid doubts over his future, a report claims.
According to Calciomercato.it, the management are beginning to think about the post-Ibrahimovic era as the Swede continues to suffer injury problems – the latest meaning he will miss the next five games – and he is out of contract until the end of the season.
In terms of names being considered there is Ciro Immobile of Lazio, but signing the former Torino man would be very complicated. The track that leads to Andrea Belotti of Torino is more affordable and more likely, while Luka Jovic – currently at Eintracht but owned by Real Madrid – is also an option.
Moise Kean’s name is in Milan’s orbit too as the young Italian has been relaunched in Paris and PSG director Leonardo would like to renew his loan, while Everton are aiming for a permanent sale. His agent is, needless to say, Mino Raiola. Tammy Abraham of Chelsea – with whom Tomori’s future is already at stake – seems set to leave and could become an option.
For now, the rumours that occasionally re-emerge about Mauro Icardi are not confirmed as he is an important player for Pochettino and has a salary worth over €10m net per season when bonuses are factored in.
