GdS: Primavera striker Colombo could feature more between now and season end

By Oliver Fisher -

Primavera striker Lorenzo Colombo could be a valuable resource for AC Milan between now and the end of the season, a report claims.

Colombo made his professional debut for the Rossoneri during Friday night’s Coppa Italia semi-final second leg against Juventus, coming off the bench as Stefano Pioli’s side looked for the goal that never came.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport notes on Sunday (via MilanNews), Colombo has been part of the Milan youth system since he was six years old.

This year the 18-year-old has impressed under Giunti’s orders amassing nine goals in six appearances for the Primavera, meaning he has often trained with the first team.

As a result, it cannot be excluded that Pioli calls him up more frequently over the next few weeks especially given the hectic nature of the schedule, and the teenager could establish himself as the back-up to Zlatan Ibrahimovic given his target man style.
