Tuttosport: Zirkzee, Jovic, and Broja – Milan’s plan for the striker department

By Ben Dixon -

Even if Olivier Giroud had stayed at the club, AC Milan have always wanted to bring in a new starting striker in the upcoming mercato, and they have a plan in mind for how their striker department will look next season.

Joshua Zirkzee is the main candidate that the club are aiming to sign, and this has been the case for several months. However, there have been suggestions that Milan may look elsewhere with the deal on hold, and Paulo Fonseca may prefer other profiles.

The Rossoneri have one of their backup option in their ranks, though. Reports from the weekend suggest that a deal for Luka Jovic is nearly finished, if not already concluded, and the Serbian will remain at the club next year.

Regardless of who comes in as the main striker, though, there is a desire to add another striker to the ranks.

As Tuttosport (via Milan News) writes, the Diavolo like the idea of adding Armando Broja to their frontline in the mercato after their attempt in January was unsuccessful. Whilst he only scored one in six months at Fulham, the club believe he could relaunch himself in Serie A.

The reports suggest that Milan may attempt a loan deal with an option to buy within the deal, and a scout was present at Albania’s fixture against Italy this weekend.

  1. Kvara’s agent says he wants to leave Napoli this summer because he needs to be playing UCL football 🤦🏻‍♂️

    1. As much as I like him, we won’t buy him as long as Leao is staying.

      If the report about Fonseca want different profile than Zirkzee is true, then management better moving fast. But Broja is not someone we put as main striker… We need someone ready. Not one that is back from long injury and unable to nail down a place in Fulham.

      1. Just switched over at the match as I had forgot about it so thanks for the reminder.
        It looks like it can go either way from what i can judge because Romania almost extended their lead.
        Dovbyk has come a long way though as he was pretty much a massive failure while he played in Denmark even though the teams he played for had some success.

      2. Yeah, Lunin (who I like) and the defence are having a proper mare 😀

        Chelsea’s deal for Mudryk really was like buying a house without seeing it then realising it’s on a sinkhole, haunted, and the bricks are hollow.

          1. To be fair I’ve seen other matches where that was also the case. From what i can judge he is a pretty good keeper but also makes too many blunders.
            Overall though when Ukraine was still in the match and even behind 1-0 some of their players made some really selfish choices where they should have made the obvious passes instead and that is now biting them in the rear end. That and the 3td goal really looked offside from my point of view.

  2. we have healthy attackers, Guaidola would have told the management if you can’t folk in 55m for zirkzee. keep the striker funds i will use what i have.


    this guys are healthy and need a good playing time.

    them you can integrate Camarda in their mist as the will (protect him) which must be a paramount task. keeping 40mil to bank on this is better than all this nonsense we going through for a striker.

    the football world knows milan need a striker and they are toying with us l. then we build one asap for ourself.

    id we are a year late on the striker purchase at least we know when we do, irrespective of whoever he his coming into a team that has a double digits attackers. more competition for no 9 less work
