Di Marzio: Origi expected to sign – Ibra’s exit could see a big investment in attack

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could decide to make a big investment in a striker for the future this summer but they must first resolve another key issue.

Going into the 2021-22 season the Milan management decided it was enough to have a 40-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic and a 35-year-old Olivier Giroud along with the long signing of Pietro Pellegri.

His loan was ended early in January but rather than going for a more established name, a few million were spent on the 18-year-old Marko Lazetic of Red Star who only made his senior debut last night while the Rossoneri were 3-0 down against Inter. This has led to calls for the attack to be freshened up and for a big investment to be made on a striker.

According to what Gianluca Di Marzio (via ScoutismoRossonero) is reporting, Milan will evaluate whether or not to make a significant investment in attack on a young player based on Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s decision over his future.

He adds that negotiations are ‘very advanced’ over Divock Origi but there is still no signature yet from the Belgium, though there is the desire to close the deal for an important player on a free.

  1. Yesss! Origi, what a player, what a savior!… fine for a free transfer but not exciting. I’d rather have Belotti and then also go for a big investment too like Nunez or Scamacca based on budget. We are becoming such a italian-less team….

    1. Football is an international sport and it is more feasible to sign a player who as about the same quality but cheaper. It’s highly unlikely that we will have a team that has more italian because globalization exists.

  2. As long as not scamacca for investment striker. He is just another the next belotti ,good on midtable team . Better go Darwin Nunez or Jonathan David if want invest striker

  3. For instant goals I would want to see Lewandowski (he is available for 40m Euro), that French boy Nkunku for right wing is a pure talent ( much better than Leao bt we keep both) and then we can look for a young inexpensive long term striker.

    1. Lewy Will extend his contract at Bayern Muenchen . There is no way we can pay his big salary 25m euro/years. I don’t believe even new owner want to sign player with salary more than 12m euro nett/years

  4. Italian players nowadays are just not good enough … how is it hard to understand??? Serie A can not export talent abroad because young Italians mentality is way different than other European players …. Young Italians play scared and lack confidence …. Plenty of young Italians play in serie b and mid table serie a teams but they’re not good enough

    1. That’s the mentality that has infected Serie A. And people such as you seem to be potentiating it, sad really. There’s raw talent there, just the development is so pathetic because managers don’t trust the youngsters and the owners are less likely to sign italian players because of italys backwards tax laws so buying is cheaper if you’re a non-italian player… It all plays a part and it just leads to a bunch of psg type teams…

    2. Sorry, but you are wrong. Italia is Europenan champion, and how they played that tournament? Excellent! Problem are trainers, with their tactics. Who is one of the best countries in World cup? Italia. There are lots of very good players in Italy, and with them, Milan can be on the top in Europe. But, I won’t tell you, who they are. Somebody (scout) get huge money to know that. To be champion again, Milan need few years with smart planing. Just look at MC and PSG, what they are doing. With all money they have, they didn’t do anything big.
