Milan face striker decision

Milan’s striker search is coming to a head, as over the next few days they must decide between Nikola Kalinic, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Andrea Belotti.

The trio have been specifically named by directors Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli as their main targets to reinforce in attack.

Several sources note that Fiorentina are ready to accept €25m plus bonuses, or the inclusion of a player like Gabriel Paletta or Luca Antonelli, for Kalinic.

This is because the Viola are close to a deal for Genoa striker Giovanni Simeone at €18m.

However, last night Aubameyang made a clear ‘come and get me’ plea via social media, noting he “would love” to come back to Milan, but “if they are sleeping, what can I do?”

This morning, the Gabon international had only 30 minutes of training with Borussia Dortmund, officially due to a light cold.

Belotti also remains in the running with Turin-based newspaper La Stampa claiming there’s a bid worth €75m plus M’Baye Niang.

According to Calciomercato.it, Fiorentina have set a deadline of August 16 for Milan to take Kalinic or else they’ll sell him to Everton, who are offering slightly more money.

That means the Rossoneri need to make a decision by Wednesday or risk losing out on all their targets.
