AC Milan striker Lorenzo Colombo could be allowed to leave in the January transfer window with a fellow Serie A side showing interest, a report claims.
The signing of Mario Mandzukic was confirmed yesterday as the striker signed a deal until the end of the season with the option for it to be extended until summer 2022.
This means that if Colombo was perhaps the fourth choice centre-forward before (behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic) he now seems to be another place lower in the pecking order now.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com (via MilanLive) it is now right to think that the 18-year-old striker could leave Milan on loan this month in order to enhance his development by getting more playing time.
There has already been interest registered too, as Crotone have requested the loan of Milan’s No.29 . It will be necessary to see if this negotiation is destined to take off or not, but playing in the top flight for a team fighting for survival would be a real character-building experience.
