Milan have already begun searching for their next no.9, but Luka Jovic has significantly increased his chances of staying put with his recent run of sound performances and goals. He has hit the net four times in his last six appearances.
Per Calciomercato, the Serb joined the Rossoneri as a deadline day flier from Fiorentina, inking just a seasonal contract. However, it envisages an option to extend it for three more years. The front office is seriously mulling picking it up.
Milan director Geoffrey Moncada weighed in on Jovic before the Udinese game to Sky.
“His renewal? We’ll talk later. We want him to work well and score. Then, we’ll discuss with calm.”
As for the future, part of the hierarchy is enamored with Joshua Zirkzee. He has been Bologna’s driving force with seven goals and two assists this season. The Rossoneri have also been linked to Benjamin Sesko. He has a €50M price tag, and RB Leipzig don’t seem willing to negotiate his price tag.
Our Take on Milan and Jovic
He has likely earned his permanence at this point, and going with two strikers together has become a valuable crutch in situations where they need to score. However, his future might also be tied to Oliver Giroud. They’ll likely sign a younger option, but they should go with three center-forwards considering the Frenchman’s age and the ever-busy schedule, but they haven’t done it in recent campaigns.
