AC Milan have not given up on their pursuit for a striker.
Despite being by far the most active team in the Serie A when it comes to adding new players, Vincenzo Montella still wants a striker to complete his squad. Let’s keep him in mind he already added the likes of Leonardo Bonucci, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ricardo Rodriguez and Andre Silva to the side.
Carlos Bacca and M’Baye Niang are on the roster as well, but Montella wants someone with experience that is already proven in one of Europe’s top leagues. And with that in mind, the club have set their sights in two players: Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Radamel Falcao.
Ibrahimovic’s signing might be the easier – and cheaper – move considering he is currently a free agent after Manchester United released him at the end of last season. But he will not be ready to play until October or November at the earliest, while there is also uncertainity on whether the injury will affect him in the future.
On the other hand, Falcao rejuvenated his career last season and was one of the biggest reasons why AS Monaco won the Ligue 1 title and reached the UEFA Champions League semifinals. But considering most of Monaco’s talent already left the team, maybe Falcao would be keen to move elsewhere to keep his ambition for titles alive.
Both players were productive last season, that is not a secret. And while both would be very good signings for Milan, the management needs to choose wisely because a proven scorer could be the missing piece on Milan’s puzzle to assault Juventus for the Serie A title next season.
