MN: Signing of a striker in January cannot be excluded – the latest on Milan’s stance

By Oliver Fisher -

The possibility of AC Milan moving to sign a new striker to be the deputy to Zlatan Ibrahimovic cannot be excluded, according to a report.

Given the hectic nature of the fixture schedule and the fact that Ibrahimovic is now 39 years of age, there have been calls from some fans and pundits for Milan to go out and sign a natural centre-forward who can play as a back-up to the Swede.

According to MilanNews, Ibrahimovic has made it clear that he would like to play in all the games that he can and in case he needs a rest then both Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic could replace him.

However, they are not players with the same characteristics as the 6ft5 target man. Even if today the management are quite cold on the idea of signing another striker, if Milan were in a genuine position to challenge for the title in January then the plan could change.

The ownership Elliott Management are willing to accommodate the moves of the management as long as they are advantageous and economically reasonable.
