Jacobone: Milan in talks over Ukraine striker endorsed by Shevchenko – he could arrive for €15m

By Oliver Fisher -

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.

    He’s good, tall, and cheaper than most striker target. So buy him make offer.

  2. Rodger says:

    Would be a great profile, price tag is big but he seems ready to step up. But if we’re talking the same price as Belotti… (presumably his wage demands could be much lower)

    Throwing the fog into the void again, why are you writing something that is not true. Maldini is following Belloti and most likely Belloti will come to Milan after EURO 2021

  4. Roses says:

    And today euro 2020 there will be a clash between 2 striker targets: Roman Yaremchuk and Sasa Kalajdzic. Who will be better and go on the next round
