AC Milan are in contact with Belgian side Gent over the signing of striker Roman Yaremchuk, according to a report from one journalist.
It is no secret now that Milan are on the lookout for a new centre-forward who can offer more guarantees from a physical point of view given Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be out for two months after undergoing minor surgery on his knee.
Yaremchuk is impressing under Andriy Shevchenko with Ukraine at the European Championships, as the 25-year-old has netted twice in two games for his country leading to some admiring glances from top clubs.
According to the latest from Alessandro Jacobone on Twitter, there are confirmed contacts between technical director Paolo Maldini and Gent for Yaremchuk. The player is “endorsed” by Shevchenko and could arrive on loan with option to buy at €15-16m. He scored 20 goals and added 7 assists for Gent in the league last season in 34 appearances.
