MN: Milan management must strongly consider big investment on striker as gamble backfires

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s lack of quality attacking depth must be addressed in the transfer market or the club risk falling behind, a journalist has claimed.

Pietro Mazzara’s latest editorial for MilanNews remarks how it is clear that the decision to take a gamble on Pietro Pellegri is not paying off despite the confidence put in him by head coach Stefano Pioli as he was presented with a chance off the bench against Sassuolo yesterday with Ibrahimovic at his side but barely did anything.

With Olivier Giroud still in the pits as well as Ante Rebic, the 21-year-old Italian will have chances even as a starter because Ibrahimovic can’t play every game, but it is almost certain that the management and the owners must make important reflections between January and the summer.

He adds that the Rossoneri need a strong investment in a young but ready centre-forward, a player on which to put a large chunk of the available budget. Even Ibra is struggling and in matches like yesterday’s – which once he would have decided on his own – someone like Dusan Vlahovic could have been huge.
