SPAL president Joe Tacopina has revealed that the club would like to re-sign Lorenzo Colombo from AC Milan and have him for the 2022-23 season as well.
Colombo was sent out on loan at the start of the season, joining Serie B side SPAL to help in their quest for promotion glory. It now looks as if that might be out of reach, and after a red-hot start to life in Ferrara the goals have dried up a bit for the teenager.
This suggests that another loan spell is likely to be on the cards for Colombo and it could potentially be in Serie B again, while it seems SPAL are very open to having him back for the 2022-23 campaign.
Interviewed by The Italian Football Podcast, Joe Tacopina – the president of SPAL – talked about the future of Colombo and confirmed that they want to keep him.
“Colombo is definitely a player that we are interested in keeping for another year. I spoke to Massara and Maldini: this is his first year as a starter, he started on fire but slowed down,” he said (via Calciomercato.com).
“It’s normal, he’s only 19. He’s an incredible talent, a good guy, he works hard and he’s someone we’d love to get back unless AC Milan have a different path in mind for him.”
