MN: Milan targeting 19-year-old striker to complete the department – he could arrive for free

By Oliver Fisher -

The hierarchies for AC Milan’s attacking department are clear, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be the leader for yet another season.

MilanNews writes that Ibrahimovic will be the starter when he can, the arrival of Olivier Giroud means there is an alternative of similar experience and characteristics, and now younger and more talented third striker is eyed.

Ibrahimovic is the unmovable starter for Pioli’s 4-2-3-1 as he showed last season that he can still be decisive at the age of 39. He is capable of acting both as a finisher and as a playmaker, and he should be back running in two weeks

The physical condition of Ibrahimovic means that Giroud could well be somewhat of a co-starter, but he will turn 35 in the next season, which is why Milan will also look for a third option. The name mentioned is Kaio Jorge, a Brazilian talent whose contract with Santos is expiring. He could join for free in the winter window, or for a small fee this summer.

    No thanks, get Scamacca please. He has the right characteristics to learn from Zlatan and Giroud. It’s literally perfect besides the price so do your Maldini magic and whittle down the price and include a youngster in the deal but with buyback.

  2. Piru says:

    I agree with you Zoro Caloro!And Scamacca is the perfect young striker he already knows the league, is italian,Milan needs italian blood in the team has we lost two italian players in the form of the brothers Donnaruma and the price is not crazy high if Milan dont want to spend like 20/25 million euros on him maybe get im on a paid loan of like 5/10 millon euros and next season pay 10/15 million euros more and we have a really good striker for the next 10 years!

    This guy could come for free and is the best Brazilian talent for the striker position right now. Scamacca will cost 20 to 25m and is ready to play right now, but won’t get his playing time behind Giroud and Ibra. Maybe next season, if he performs well enough.

  4. CollyWood says:

    Better than getting overpriced players of roughly thesame abilities from the serie A!

  5. Piru says:

    Yes we can come for free in January but theres no guarante that Ibra stays fit until then and the brazilian kid needs time to adapt to the league,language and etc where Scamacca already knows everything!
