Sky: Two key targets as Milan will sign ‘big-name striker’ in the summer

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan are expected to sign a new striker in the summer, having postponed what was initially planned as a January intervention. There are two key targets on their radar, a report claims, and whoever arrives will be a big name. 

Earlier in the season, the Rossoneri had a period in which they struggled with the goalscoring. However, since then, Luka Jovic has found his stride with six goals in all competitions (a goal every 114 minutes). Not to mention that Olivier Giroud is on 11 goals in all competitions.

As reported by Sky Italia’s Manuele Baiocchini (via MilanNews), Milan will sign a ‘big-name striker’ in the summer. There are two key targets currently, namely Jonathan David and Joshua Zirkzee, but more targets could emerge in the coming months.

David has struggled a bit with Lille this season and his price tag could thus be lower than the previous demand of €40m. Zirkzee, on the other hand, has been a huge success for Bologna and he will not be cheap.

A lot will likely also depend on the managerial situation at Milan, with Stefano Pioli’s future being a bit uncertain currently. It is only logical that whoever will coach the team will have a say in the No.9 pursuit.

  1. Zirkzee is definitely the ideal striker to replace giroud. Affordable, young, fast, good hold up and link up play, and already settled in italy with further room for improvement. If motta replaces pioli, there will be an even better chance for him to succeed at milan.

    Sesko is definitely too expensive and i cant think of any other top striker who would join Milan for cheap. Signing zirkzee would go along with Milan’s sustainability practice as well

    1. Out of the two, Zirkzee seems like a more logical choice. His price won’t have other direction but to go up. Has an experience on the league. Physically suited for our forward system. And moreover we can play the Alexis card to smoothen the deal.

  2. Big name? I don’t even know who the fvck are these two players.

    And what about Jovic and Okafor? Are we just gonna let them go after they work hard and scored important goals?

    I just don’t understand how Furlani and Moncada works.
