AC Milan have clear ideas regarding the 2023 summer transfer window already and one of them is to sign a striker for the future, a report claims.
Calciomercato.com reports how the management are waiting for signs from Divock Origi who has so far battled numerous injury problems, while Olivier Giroud will be 36 by the start of next season, Zlatan Ibrahimovic could retire and Ante Rebic is a natural winger.
This means that a new striker will be needed, but the change of ownership from Elliott Management to RedBird Capital has not altered the guidelines on investments, so Milan will not have €60-70m available to spend just for one player.
Younger profiles will be monitored and evaluated instead, with Chelsea’s Armando Broja on their list. He is not a goal machine as he netted 10 in 30 games two years ago in the Eredivisie with Vitesse, then 9 in 38 with Southampton in all competitions last season, but he fits perfectly with Milan’s style.
At the moment there is nothing more than a simple interest, but it cannot be ruled out that it could become something more in the coming months.
Chelsea consider him transferable despite the renewal of his contract until 2028 and the excellent relationship between Milan and the Blues could help, with a starting price of €30m.
