AC Milan’s summer transfer business was very important in rebuilding an attack that struggled last season, meaning Stefano Pioli now has a number of weapons to call upon.
This morning’s edition of Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) reports that Milan – who purchased Luka Jovic from Fiorentina on the last day of the window – now has an arsenal in attack with great potential for the 2023-24 season.
The Champions League group stage will see the Rossoneri face PSG, Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle United. It is a stimulating and and ultra-competitive outcome, which will need the best version of the team.
The paper adds that Milan’s attacking department has 18 combined European goals since the start of last season, coming from Rafael Leão, Olivier Giroud, Noah Okafor, Samuel Chukwueze and Jovic.
The Rossoneri’s new deputy striker contributed to dragging Fiorentina to the Conference League final last year and in Jovic, Pioli will find other precious material to add to the guns that were already in the squad.
Tijjani Reijnders – who is a midfielder by trade – also scored 3 goals for AZ Alkmaar in the last edition of the Conference League as well, so he can chip in too.
How does that stack up with rivals? Napoli have an attack with 16 European goals last season, Roma have 14 (also thanks to Romelu Lukaku), Juventus and Lazio have 8 and Inter have 5 (only from Lautaro Martinez).
