From Jovic to Azmoun: Who can replace Ibrahimovic at Milan

By Nikita Fesyukov -

Despite the transfer market still somewhat far away, there is still a lot of talk about potential reinforcements for the upcoming season. And with the uncertainty surrounding Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s future, AC Milan will be looking to reinforce their offensive department in the coming months.

The 38-year-old fueled rumours about his departure from Milan at the end of the season with some of his recent controversial declarations with regards to CEO Ivan Gazidis, likely new coach Ralf Rangnick as well as the overall direction in which the Rossoneri are going.

For this reason, his stay at the club beyond this season remains unlikely and Milan are thus observing the market for potential replacements.

According to Sportmediaset, the Rossoneri want to keep Ante Rebic at all costs, while sending Andre Silva to Frankfurt outright, but they also want to add more elements to strengthen the attack.

The names targetted are Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic, Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic and Sardar Azmoun from Zenit St. Petersburg. All these players, as well as Rebic, have another thing in common (other than being attackers): agent Fali Ramadani, with whom Milan maintain a positive relationship.
