Di Marzio: ‘Very liked in Italy’ – Milan follow Broja’s progress amid Serie A interest

By Ben Dixon -

AC Milan’s desire this summer are to add two strikers to their forward department – a main striker and a rotational option alongside Luka Jovic. Today, there has been an update on their interest in a Premier League striker. 

With Joshua Zirkzee’s agent stalling a move to Milan, things are not progressing in terms of a move for the Dutchman, and Milan are taking stock of other options and finding new ones. However, they will not put their search for another striker on hold.

It was reported earlier this week that the Rossoneri plan to add two strikers to their ranks this summer, with a large offset being an heir for Olivier Giroud and the other being a rotational option, perhaps, with the future in mind.

An option that has been consistently linked with the club has been Armando Broja, and attempts were made in January to bring him to the club, but their pursuit was unsuccessful at that time. However, they are seemingly pursuing him again now, but they are not the only ones to be doing so.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio (via Radio Rossonera), the Albanian forward is ‘very liked’ in Italy, and Milan will face competition from Napoli, Roma, and Bologna, who are all seeking a player with his profile, but Chelsea are demanding a fee of €25+ million.

Scouts were present at Albania’s game against Italy, and whilst the striker had a quiet game, their interest in him is persisting.

  1. sign broja and PINAMONTI in addition to jovic. we need 3 strikers cos we are competing in 3 tournament. with 13 – 15m Milan can sign PINAMONTI

  2. They like cuz he is cheap and not bcuz he is good…

    I don’t see him better than Lorenzo Luca of Udinese or Roberto Piccoli of Lecce

    1. Personally I wouldn’t mind Lucca as one of 3 striker options. If I remember correctly that kid is 2.02 meter tall and the second tallest player in Serie A after the Torino goalkeeper Savic. Put some extra weight on him as he only weighs roughly 80 kilos and he would be a force to be reckoned with and he has a pretty good goals/assists ratio pr minute this season for a relegation candidate.
      He probably would come fairly cheap as well and would help with the European quota.

        1. Yeah he did and he defintely would be a handful for everyone to handle if he bulks up a bit.
          There is a bit different info on his height some say 2 meter and some 2.01 and some 2.02 but assuming he is 2.02 his ideal weight is 97 kilos if muscle and not just fat so there is plenty of room for him to gain some weight and even ten kilo would do him some good. Not many can move a player like that easily.

      1. Yep, I’ve always been fond of Lucca. I also think they should still take a look at Scamacca, although after selling a 9 goal striker for 74M, 50M might not be enough for Atalanta.

        1. Same here and I was also very disapointed to see Atalanta getting him for 25 mil last year as he would have been a perfect understudy for Giroud for a year. I doubt its very feasible at this point but I would absolutely support such deal.
          In the end Lucca would also fit the mold and certainly would be a lot cheaper and I can see that he is only on loan at Udinese from Pisa and apparently there isn’t a buyout clause inserted within the deal.
