GdS: Milan and Inter closely monitoring in-form striker who cost Lecce €4m

By Oliver Fisher -

Nikola Krstovic has been Lecce’s most impressive performers so far this season and he is attracting the interest of AC Milan and Inter, according to a report.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report how Pantaleo Corvino’s latest transfer coup is Krstovic, who has three goals in the first three games he has played this season, netting most recently in the match against Monza on Sunday.

Several clubs have already sent an scout to see him. At the U-Power Stadium over the weekend there were representatives of Milan and Inter there, but also of some foreign clubs. All for Krstovic? Not only for him, but at the moment the Montenegrin is perhaps the biggest draw.

Corvino signed him to months of research, videos watched and contacts with Mirko Vucinic, his great advocate. Playing at Dac Dunajska Streda in Slovakia, the Lecce director decided to make his move after he finished second-top scorer in the league and got him for €4m.

Why did he end up at Lecce? Because the top clubs, Italian and beyond, didn’t spot him or didn’t believe enough in him. However, now – after goals against Fiorentina, Salernitana and Monza – they are starting to see his qualities.

Both Milan sides wanted to invest in a striker last summer and both the Nerazzurri and Rossoneri have put Krstovic in their notebook. They will also follow him in the coming months, aware that his price tag will be 4-5 times higher than the investment made by Corvino.

  1. Lecce really upgraded over the “great italian talent”, Colombo.
    Krstovic in 3 games has 3 goals, while Colombo had 5 in 33 games and was getting praised.
    There are levels to this.

      1. I just checked it, he joined Basaksehir in turkey on a free transfer from hertha berlin whom we had sold him to for 24 mil. In the meantime he has been loaned out to fiorentina and salernitana.

    1. he may have played many matches throughout the season but he roughly played 1600 minutes combined and contributed with 6 goals and 2 assists so he basically helped with either a goal or an assist in every second match, not too shabby is it ? nope it isnt,
      Lets see how the montegrin performs throughout the season.

  2. I knew it 😂😂 😂 Was just waiting for it. Ha e been following Lecce due to them playing well (they’ll obviously fizzle out). And their striker has been decent but more importantly they’ve been playing well as a team. It’s not just Krstovic. Banda, Almqvist and Ramadani (for the DM in a 433 btw wink wink) have been great together esp in the attacking phase. They also have a young team with great talent. Kaba I feel is underrated as a young defensive mid.
