AC Milan could make a late loan move for Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic, according to a report.
The Rossoneri leadership are hard at work to give new head coach Marco Giampaolo one more attacking option to have at his disposal before the window shuts.
Angel Correa of Atletico Madrid is widely reported to be the primary target, but the complicated nature of that deal has led to reports that other options are being considered.
Reports on Tuesday linked Milan with a loan move for Jovic, who it was reported might not be in Zinedine Zidane’s immediate plans, despite having arrived at the Bernabeu in a €60m deal earlier this window.
Fabrizio Romano offered his understanding of the situation on Wednesday, claiming that Milan are in fact not interested in signing Jovic.
However, La Gazzetta dello Sport have provided their take by claiming that the door is not completely closed.
The Serbia international is apparently considered as available for loan by Real Madrid given their attacking depth and the player’s need for game time given his age.
A dry loan is not a formula that Milan has taken into consideration so far in this window, but they could make an exception to this based on their desperation to sign another goalscorer.
The sale of André Silva would be very helpful in terms of unlocking a deal for a new striker, as would that of Samu Castillejo, but both look far away from an exit at present.
