Report: Milan’s plan for the attack – Ibrahimovic for six months then a Piatek-Belotti swap

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could use Krzysztof Piatek in a swap deal in order to land another striker, according to the latest reports.

Piatek started his career well with the Rossoneri following his arrival from Genoa in the January window, however he has scored just one goal from open play this season so far leading to doubts over his future.

Milan are apparently in the market for another striker, and La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com) even reported that Piatek would be allowed to leave on a six-month loan if Zlatan Ibrahimovic arrives, with Genoa interested in bringing him back.

The Poland international then gave an interesting interview to Polish TV station TVP Sport while on international duty, claiming he wants to be worth €60-70m next time he changes clubs.

According to Calciomercato.it, Milan are considering offering Ibrahimovic a six-month deal worth €4m and then will consider a move for a new No.9 next summer.

And the name that is back in fashion is none other than Andrea Belotti, the captain of the Torino and a player who was heavily linked with a move to Milan two years ago.

This season the 25-year-old has already amassed 13 goals and has nailed down his spot in the Italian national team, meaning Torino president Urbano Cairo will demand a fortune to let him leave.

However, the report tentatively mentions that a starting point could be €50million plus Piatek.
