Di Marzio: Ekitike opportunity to Colombo staying – latest on Milan’s striker pursuit

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will only sign a new striker if the opportunity is right and it is also entirely possible the attacking department could stay as it is, Gianluca Di Marzio claims.

Di Marzio spoke on Sky (via Radio Rossonera) last night and he gave an update on Milan’s pursuit of a new centre-forward, stating that the management will intervene if an ‘interesting opportunity’ emerges.

Otherwise, Lorenzo Colombo will remain with Noah Okafor and Olivier Giroud as the options for the striker role. Hugo Ekitike remains a player that Milan have probed, but if PSG ask for a permanent deal or a loan with obligation then it is not possible.

If the Ligue 1 champions open up to a loan with option to buy then he is an option that Milan can think about more concretely, but the journalist added an interesting line: “Milan believe they have already done everything needed to strengthen the squad.”

There have been some tentative rumours linking Romelu Lukaku with a move, as have Roma, but Di Marzio states that Mauricio Pochettino wants to talk to the Belgian to see if there is the possibility of reintegrating him.

  1. Can’t see a problem with a support striker for Olivier Giroud,,,yes why not columbo …he can learn so much from the great man Olivier ..
    Incidentally do you realise just how good Olivier Giroud still is ….I told yo all when we bought him we could win the scuddeto,which we did ,and yes Olivier was partially the reason for that …last season reached semi final of the Champions league,again much to do with Giroud…yes we do need a man who can fill in for Olivier when needed …yes columbo could be that man .coming back onto Giroud ,,,just listen ,open your ears this man can rack up 20 goals this season with the players he has around him ,such as pulisic and rafeol leao ….so stop worrying..we will challenge for honours
    this season.
