Milan look for a striker: the five names to follow
Milan are not only underperforming in defence, but their spearhead is also badly damaged. Ibrahimovic and Rebic are injured and the very young Lorenzo Colombo is not convincing as a substitute. This will cause Milan to go to the market in search of a striker.
The Italian newspaper 'Tuttosport' has announced the five names that Milan could turn to. Paolo Maldini and Massara have three players in red in their diaries: Luka Jovic of Real Madrid, Odsonne Edouard of Celtic (who scored at the San Siro a few weeks ago) and Gianluca Scamacca of Sassuolo on loan from Genoa.
The latter is precisely one of the hottest names in this 'operation nine'. Another Italian source, in this case 'Sport Mediaset', warns that Milan could meet with Sassuolo to talk about Scamacca, on the day of the Serie A between both teams.
Beyond the interests of the Milan management, we must not leave out Mino Raiola, an influential figure in the Rossoneri market. The representative could offer two of his players: Donyell Malen (PSV) and Myron Boadu (AZ Alkmaar), who already interested the club in the past.
Milan, according to the line of their project, are looking for a young striker, so players like Mandzukic or Giroud are discarded. The Elliott fund, owner of Milan, has already given the green light to the search for a striker, so Maldini and Massara are already moving to find the perfect Christmas present for Pioli.
