From Belgium: Milan in talks with Gent over loan with option to buy deal for €25m-rated striker

By Oliver Fisher -

Reports in Belgium have now backed up claims that AC Milan are interested in signing Roman Yaremchuk from KAA Gent.

Alessandro Jacobone reported earlier today that there are confirmed contacts between technical director Paolo Maldini and Gent for Yaremchuk. The player is “endorsed” by Shevchenko and could arrive on loan with option to buy at €15-16m.

According to both Sportwereld and Nieuwsblad (via FootballItalia), Milan have indeed approached Gent over the Ukraine international, who scored 20 goals and added 7 assists for the Belgian club in 34 league appearances last season.

Yaremchuk also has 10 goals in 26 senior caps for Ukraine, which is part of the reason why the Rossoneri – as per the reports – have made an initial approach and hope to sign him on loan with an option to buy set at €15-20m.

Gent want closer to €25m but a deal could be reached with the inclusion of add-ons. Yaremchuk is impressing under Andriy Shevchenko with Ukraine at the European Championships, scoring twice in two games for his country leading to some admiring glances.

  1. I don’t think he is any better than Mandzukić at 35 years (after going through whole pre-season training). Mediocre striker, but if he can arrive practically for free and be returned if he is bad, fine, why not. He will be an ok backup.

    1. Have you ever watch him play,I don’t think so, cause if you have,you won’t compare him to Mandzukic at all, though he might not be a complete striker but far far better that what you think about him

  2. And today euro 2020 there will be a clash between 2 striker targets: Roman Yaremchuk and Sasa Kalajdzic. Who will be better and go on the next round?
