Resto del Carlino: Sassuolo want Milan striker – he could be a counterpart in Traore deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan striker Lorenzo Colombo is attracting interest from Sassuolo and they would take him as a counterpart in a deal for one of their forwards.

That is according to what is being reported by il Resto del Carlino (via, who claim that Milan have decided to reject the proposal made by SPAL to renew the loan of Colombo for another season.

The Italian striker will return in the summer but it is highly unlikely that he will stay, because Sassuolo are interested in him and could accept his card as a counterpart for Hamed Junior Traorè.

It is no secret that Milan are looking for a playmaker capable of beating his man and scoring, so Traorè represents the right profile for the Rossoneri management, but to sign him from the Neroverdi would cost about €20m.

It is a figure that the Rossoneri are convinced they can reduce by including Colombo. The Ivorian playmaker has collected 26 appearances this season for Sassuolo with 7 goals and 4 assists.

  1. Keep on selling our youth players… it’s ridiculous. Pretty soon it will be a team of no real passion or depth. I’m convinced Milan hates italians.

      1. He reminds me of Petagna. A decent player off the bench in Series A but not a starter. If this nets Traore who is not much older and fits a need, then it makes sense.

    1. Lol. Come on my friend. If an Italian player is good enough they will earn a spot in the team like Tonali and Calabria. If not we should sell them. It’s a global game. Not regional. I’m not worried about losing Columbo – yes he could develop or become another paloschi or cutrone…I think the latter is more realistic which is why Maldini isn’t worried about selling him
