CorSera: Milan could sign one of two strikers as stopgap then pursue €25m Juventus target

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could end up signing one of two players this transfer window as a stopgap striker before looking to a more long-term target, a report claims.

Our correspondent Pietro Balzano Prota has informed us earlier today that the availability of Mandzukic to join Milan has been transformed over the hours into a desire.

Milan are in the “ongoing evaluations” phase, from every point of view. The temptation is there and it is big, with further talks having been conducted this morning.

According to today’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), now even the Milan executives are convinced that Pioli’s squad needs a deputy to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and for this reason they are looking for a striker.

The two names being considered are Mario Mandzukic – currently a free agent – and Leonardo Pavoletti of Cagliari. In recent weeks, the name of Gianluca Scamacca – owned by Sassuolo on loan at Genoa – has also often been mentioned, but this is an option more for June than for January.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Football Italia) are reporting though that Juventus have practically agreed terms with Sassuolo to sign the 21-year-old centre-forward for a fee of around €20-25m.

  1. I am assuming you’re speaking about Donyell Malen. Do you really want an untested kid from different league to be leading the line for the next 6 months if Ibra is unavailable, or do you prefer a more experienced and proven back up?

    Malen COULD be good for the future, but not at winter mercato, just my 2 cents.
