Tuttosport: Milan to close Lazetic signing imminently – Vlahovic comparisons wide of the mark

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will close the signing of Marko Lazetic in the next day or two and will welcome a centre-forward who has immense potential, a report claims.

As reported by today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), today can be called ‘Lazetic Day’ because this morning the documents needed for the transfer of the 18-year-old will be signed and exchanged. The player’s agents are expected in the afternoon at Casa Milan to ratify the agreement, while Lazetic is expected to land in Milan between tomorrow and Thursday.

Milan have sealed the signing of a very talented striker who is highly thought of in his own country, coming from a city that has already produced a gem in Dusan Vlahovic. Lazetic is described as a modern forward, capable of shooting with his left and right and with good physicality.

He will join the first team and grow under the guidance of two champions in Ibrahimovic and Giroud, and while many continue to compare Lazetic with Vlahovic, those who have seen him are keen to emphasise that the two players have different characteristics.
