Lorenzo Colombo is expected to leave AC Milan on another loan and Monza appear to be in pole position for his services. In fact, Adriano Galliani confirmed the interest ahead of their game against Inter tonight.
The 21-year-old striker spent last season on loan at Lecce and he has asked to go out on loan again for this season. Monza have more or less reached an agreement with Milan, per Gianluca Di Marzio, and only the final go-ahead is missing.
Speaking to Sky Italia (via Francesco Nasato) ahead of the clash against Inter, Monza CEO and former Milan CEO Galliani commented on the rumours. He confirmed that they indeed are interested in the services of Colombo: “We are looking to sign Colombo because he’s an excellent player,” he stated.
Milan are looking for a new striker on the mercato, given the aforementioned, and their two primary targets appear to be Armando Broja and Hugo Ekitike. For now, though, Colombo is still within the ranks.
