AC Milan are expected to let Lorenzo Colombo leave on loan this summer and will thus have to find a new striker on the market. Chelsea youngster Armando Broja is in pole position for the role, a report claims.
Colombo spent last season on loan at Lecce and after impressing Stefano Pioli during the pre-season, many expected him to remain as the third-choice striker. However, the youngster has asked to leave the club on another loan.
According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (see photo below), Monza are close to securing the services of Colombo and Milan will thus have to bring in a striker. Chelsea’s Armando Broja is in pole position, per the newspaper, as the Rossoneri are ready to make a serious attempt.
Giorgio Furlani and Geoffrey Moncada want to secure the 21-year-old on an initial loan deal and it remains to be seen if Chelsea will accept that. In any case, after completing the defence with the arrival of Marco Pellegrino, the attack is now the priority for Milan.
