Repubblica: All change in Milan’s attack – striker almost certain to arrive; Leao towards England

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking to close the signing of a new striker in the coming days and it could open the door for Rafael Leao to leave, a report claims.

This morning’s edition of the newspaper La Repubblica (via MilanNews) writes that Milan are close to sealing the purchase of Kaio Jorge from Santos, whose contract expires in December. The deal is not yet fully done and is down to the details, but it is almost certain to happen.

The Rossoneri will therefore compliment the new signing of Olivier Giroud plus leader Zlatan Ibrahimovic with a 19-year-old who has shown his high potential and is ready to grow under two veterans who have won virtually everything.

With the imminent arrival of Kaio Jorge, it could be Rafael Leao who makes way, as the 22-year-old has several admirers in England.Many were convinced that last season would be the season when he made a leap in quality, but Portuguese still had too many ups and downs and has shown that he is still too inconsistent. His stay at Milan is now in doubt, especially if another young striker arrives.

  1. Leao should stay! He is the future of ACM. Maybe a slight change of his position would make him a better scorer. We have all seen what he can do but he needs more support and more minutes. His movements are very good and could be great soon. Inzaghi rarely contributed to the ACM’s game and then scored the decisive goal, Leao is the opposite – he contributes to the game a lot but rarely scores. But goals for Leao will come for sure. Hopefully in ACM t-shirt!

    1. Pioli tried Leo in that position before and didn’t deliver. Yes and does provide at times but misses a lot of clear opportunity and not too successful at opening defense and make passes which is what ACM does

  2. As in the coming season we’re facing, Leao’s pattern of game is not going to help Milan_ but if he could manage to stay and learn even after the arrival of new striker then it’s okay

  3. Chances given to him is enough, but he fails to convince the managements including me, his inconsistencies is always increasing. send him out and bring in luis alberto from lazio we’ve enough of LW while we got an experiencies strikers in giroud and ibra with KJ. in waiting.
