Milan: Zaza only on loan

Coach Vincenzo Montella holds Juventus' Simone Zaza in great esteem, but Milan are only willing to take him on loan.

The Rossoneri are looking for another striker to flank new signing Gianluca Lapadula, and the 25-year-old Italian ticks all the right boxes.

The Old Lady's purchase of Gonzalo Higuain further marginalises a player who was already unhappy about his lack of playing time, and a departure now seems all but inevitable.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the player's father and agent is attempting to find him a new team, ideally without taking them away from Italy.

Milan, alongside Roma, represent one possible destination, but they are only willing to take the player on loan rather than buying him outright.

While the solution would let the player get away, it is believed that Juventus would not be very happy with this option, and might turn to a different club if it gives them the opportunity for an outright sale.
