Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s potential season-ending injury has reinforced the need for AC Milan to purchase a new striker in the summer, a report claims.
According to MilanNews, the historic victory against Juventus has brought enthusiasm back to Milanello and now the Champions League target is close, but a last effort is needed as wins against Torino and Cagliari would be enough.
Ibrahimovic’s injury has caused everyone to worry, but it seems to be less serious than expected. He will certainly miss tonight’s game and Sunday’s match at San Siro and is at risk for the game against Atalanta.
The club will work on the market to look for a striker given that Mario Mandzukic, Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic have failed to offer guarantees when replacing the Swede. The first name is Dusan Vlahovic of Fiorentina, but the €60m requested by their president Rocco Commisso scares the management, so it will be really difficult to sign the Serbian.
Andrea Belotti is also on the list as his contract is expiring in 2022 and a renewal seems complicated. Options from abroad must be taken into consideration too as Milan, through their scouting department, are working on names from other leagues.
