AC Milan are still in the market for another striker before the window closes and there are a number of candidates being looked into, a report claims.
Before reading the update below, it is worth checking out our latest Substack piece on Origi as well as Alexis Saelemaekers and Charles De Ketelaere, which has some exclusive info on their respective situations.
Today’s edition of Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan) talks about Milan’s pursuit of a striker who can rotate with Olivier Giroud and help the Frenchman manage his workload a bit better than he was able to do during the 2022-23 season.
With the arrival of another striker, the management would then have the opportunity to let Lorenzo Colombo leave on loan, who will renew his contract with Milan until June 2028 regardless but then could join Monza.
The names circulated in the last ten days are always those of Chelsea’s Armando Broja and PSG’s Hugo Ekitike. The first option has cooled down, with the Premier League side closing the door to a loan formula.
The second option is being worked on as a loan with option deal that would actually have a buy-back in favour of Paris Saint-Germain.
In terms of outgoings, Marko Lazetic and Divock Origi are expected to leave. There are no concrete offers for the latter, who has a €5.2m gross yearly salary.
