CM: Milan monitoring three young forwards but are unlikely to invest in January

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have three attacking targets on their list but they are unlikely to make an investment in January, according to a report. report that Stefano Pioli is preparing for the resumption of Serie A with an absence of strikers. Olivier Giroud made the final of the World Cup and will now go on vacation after the defeat against Argentina, so will return to Milanello in about ten days, while Divock Origi has suffered a flexor problem and will be assessed upon the team’s return to Italy.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not be rushed and will certainly not be ready for the Salernitana game, so at present Ante Rebic is the only name who can play as a striker even though it is not his preferred position.

In the background remain the possibility using Charles De Ketelaere as a false nine or the idea of using teenager Marko Lazetic, but the Serbian needs time to mature without pressure.

If Origi were to miss more matches, Milan’s market strategies could also change. The first reaction would be to keep Lazetic, but Maldini and Massara will evaluate the possibility of signing a striker on loan.

The names monitored to reinforce the department remain those of Noah Okafor (Salzburg), Loïs Openda (Lens) and Elye Wahi (Montpellier), though at the moment it is unlikely that a big investment will arrive as early as January.
