TMW: Atalanta set sights on Milan forward who netted impressive brace in friendly

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan striker Lorenzo Colombo started his preseason campaign in the best possible way yesterday, scoring a brace, while he is attracting interest from Serie A.

TMW recall how Colombo’s first full season in Serie A on loan at Lecce yielded 5 goals and 2 assists, plus a goal in the Coppa Italia. He netted the penalty that secured their status in the top flight, and is in demand.

Teams like Genoa and Sassuolo have been linked, but the source claims that Atalanta have set their sights on the 21-year-old now and have been testing the ground with the Rossoneri to understand the possible feasibility of the negotiation.

La Dea have always been a club that focuses on the development of young players and undoubtedly could be the ideal place to grow for the Milan Primavera graduate.

What must be added to this is the possible departure of Rasmus Hojlund, the Danish striker who is the subject of a huge offer from Manchester United. If he leaves, then Colombo could become a serious option.

    1. Am not too sure, we need Italian blood for home ground too. Surely 20m is great amount for him RIGHT NOW but I have some hunch that Colombo will become BIG. So if we sell him now we might regret it later.

      1. What gives you the indication that he will become more than a 20m striker?
        I think he can certainly become a good Serie A striker, but I don’t see the talent to go beyond that honestly, he is more someone who is good at the basics for his position, but no “x-factor”

        I don’t think anyone would offer 20m but 20m of pure capital gain would be a no-brainer.

        1. He got some knack for scoring goals in important match, he can score 6 goals in struggling Lecce. He isn’t easily dispossessed, have some frame compared to some Milan young strikers, and his long shot is decent.

          Still far from finished product but I do think he is talented. Higher ceiling than recent primavera striker graduate, I’d say. Certainly better than Cutrone, one of the better striker from our academy in recent years.

          He can be our 3rd option so can learn from Giroud, or going to loan again for better serie A team than Lecce to get more experience.
