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.
