Tuttosport: Danish teenager impresses with a goal as Maldini watches on

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan technical director Paolo Maldini was at the game between Atalanta and Spezia yesterday to watch a young striker in action, a report claims.

According to Tuttosport, Maldini was present at the Gewiss Arena for the Coppa Italia last 16 clash between Atalanta and Spezia to watch his son who is on loan with the Ligurian club, but he also wanted to watch Jakub Kiwior of Spezia and his direct opponent Rasmus Hojlund.

However, Di Marzio and Fabrizio Romano are both reporting that Kiwior is now very close to saying goodbye to Serie A and joining the current Premier League leaders Arsenal in a deal that will be worth €25m plus bonuses.

Milan need to invest in a new centre-forward in the next couple of windows with Olivier Giroud aged 36, Zlatan Ibrahimovic aged 41 and Divock Origi who has struggled with injury problems, and it seems Hojlund could be a fit for the youth project.

The young Dane arrived from Sturm Graz in the summer and has five goals in 15 competitive games for La Dea since joining, which is beginning to turn some heads given he is 19 years of age. He also scored in Atalanta’s 5-2 win, which will have no doubt impressed Maldini.

  1. That channel we opened up by loaning Daniel who isn’t playing to preferential lane in signing kiwior worked an absolute treat. 2 years I’ve been hearing about this deal. Porco dio

  2. Was just signed for 17 mil, how much that we think they’ll let him go? And it’s Atalanta we’re talking about, who set 5 mil price tag for their back up GK who’ll be out of contract in 6 months. Nonsense.

  3. Maldini MO: Don’t sign a player when he is cheap, low or free but try to sign him when his price has ballooned.
    Great strategy.

  4. If Paolo had listened to Kaladge who tried to persuade him that Kvaratskhelia is the new world star player who is still very cheap, things would be wonderful now. He could sell Leao for double the price of the Georgian star and he would also save a lot of millions he spent on De Keteleare, a player who has done absolutely nothing so far.

    1. I don’t think you have noticed, but any player that is recommended to management, management never signs them, in same vain, any player who is itching to play for Milan, management also doesn’t sign them. It’s bewildering every time.

      1. to get signed, score a goal against Milan. hehe. that usually does the trick.. if not, be injury prone with a high wage request.
        kaladze did recommend the Napoli #7.. and the boy is good.
        leao is requesting huge wages, cos he feels Milan will choke without him, which is true. pioli has done nothing so far to diversify our attack. he is a one trick pony and we are paying for it.

        1. If Pioli is a one trick pony, in his 2nd season he wouldn’t brought Milan to 2nd place and back to UCL after Milan absent for almost a decade with many unknown young and inexperienced players. Nor he can win scudetto last season with many injured players. Nor Milan still in 2nd place in the league and proceed to UCL knockout stage.

          Gives respect to Pioli and stop acting like a childlish-brainless-angry fans.
