CorSport: Milan could yet sign another striker with three names on the list

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could yet sign another striker before the window closes but everything revolves around Lorenzo Colombo, according to a report.

As we reported yesterday and as Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) confirm, there is a possibility that Stefano Pioli asks to keep Colombo in the squad for next season as a rotation option, and he is evaluating him during preseason.

However, Cagliari, Genoa and Atalanta are ready to welcome the 21-year-old and if he were to depart then the management would look for another striker.

Alejo Véliz from Rosario Central and Lucas Beltrán from River Plate are two options being considered. Milan have already met Véliz’s agent, though they have not presented an offer. He has a release clause of €15m but Roma and Fiorentina are also keen.

The third name is Mehdi Taremi, who Milan were intensely linked with a few weeks back prior to the arrival of Noah Okafor. He could be a classic late opportunity, but for now Porto still want €20m.

    1. Agree 💯- I’d take either tbh. And if that means Colombo has to go on loan again maybe that’s not such a bad thing.

  1. Judging by his current wage, growth degree and a 4 year contract we should be able to get Taremi for around 7m annual cost, that wouldn’t be too bad.

  2. If we had signed Benzema 14 years ago when he signed for Real it could have saved us the trouble of signing a new striker or strikers every single season since…..

  3. I went to work the other day and my boss told me that he was umming and ahing about whether or not to keep my around and was thinking of replacing me with someone else.

    For some reason it didn’t fill me with confidence…..

      1. Was it the first carrot cake you tried that day or did you just keep buying carrot cakes and taking a single bite out of each?

    1. Why are you comparing a made up story about you having a job to football players? Veliz is quite likely now and even then Colombo is going to stay. Stop crying.

  4. €20 million for 31 year old Teremi or €15 million for 22 year old Beltran or 19 year old Veilz, both of whom could triple their value in one season. Tough choice.
