Milan Could Ultimately Opt to Stand Pat Offensively

Milan have probed a few strikers to deputize Olivier Giroud but might not sign anybody after all. Their preferred one is Hugo Etiktité, but they are having trouble convincing PSG to let him go out on loan with no strings attached, TuttoSport informs.

Unless they find a player they really like, the Rossoneri will move forward with Noah Okafor and Lorenzo Colombo deputizing the Frenchman. Monza have earmarked the youngster, but they need the domino to unfold to snap him up.

Etiktité could indeed leave PSG, but only after they signed another center-forward and preferably on a somewhat permanent deal. Milan haven’t planned any more expensive signings up front after splurging on Christian Pulisic and Samuel Chukwueze.

Okafor played in multiple positions, including no.9, during his time at RB Salzburg. Colombo led Lecce’s frontline, sharing duties with Assan Ceesay, logging five goals and two assists in the past campaign. He previously starred for SPAL And Cremonese.

Our Take on the Milan Attack

The Rossoneri have refrained from making random purchases, so they’ll either pinpoint somebody cheap or loan but still with upside, or they will probably stay as is and see where things are in January, which wouldn’t be the worst proposition. If they were willing to take the other route, there would be some logic in bringing in Andrea Petagna.
