Official: Milan striker Marko Lazetic heads out on new loan deal

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan youngster Marko Lazetic has secured a new loan move away from the club, this time joining Serbian side Backa Topola. 

As was officially announced by Backa Topola, the 20-year-old striker will spend the next season on loan back in his home country after struggling to make the breakthrough at Milan.

Lazetic joined Milan from Red Star Belgrade in January 2022 for €4.5m and the hope was that he would not take too long to come through and offer help to the first team.

Instead, he has been on two different loan spells away from the club and now this will be his third. His first one was with SCR Altach in Austria where he managed to play 10 games but did not score. He then went to Fortuna Sittard in the Netherlands where he played nine games but also didn’t score.

Milan presumably think that sending Lazetic back to Serbia will be a better environment for him to recapture his form and perhaps earn himself a permanent move away. Another option would have been to use him in the new U23 team.

Lazetic is the fourth summer signing that his new club has made this summer and they are based in the north-west of the country.

  1. Ok I can see that they ended up at third place in the best Serbian league and that they only has two center forwards in the squad and both are on loan and one with an option to buy so hopefully he will find room to play fairly regularly and get up in gears. I assume that they will play in Europe as well then which would be good for Lazetic but wouldn’t have minded keeping him in the u23 squad either as we have already seen he has been mismanaged on all of his previous loans not that he has done well but his chance to prove himself has been extremely limited as well.

    1. He is going to be coached by his uncle, so if he doesn’t get a chance to play and prove himself it will just prove that he isn’t good.

      1. Oh thanks for sharing the info Z, I didn’t know that. Well on one hand he should have a great chance to prove himself and it cant hurt to have a familiar face coaching him after some really bad loans in recent years. On the other hand his uncle might not believe in nepotism 😀
