Sky: AC Milan reach striker deal

AC Milan have agreed personal terms with Croatian striker Andrej Kramaric. The Rossoneri are currently in negotiations with Hoffenheim claims Sky.

The arrival of Marco Giampaolo will change AC Milan’s game system. Gennaro Gattuso’s old 4-3-3 will cease to exist with the former Sampdoria coach opting for a line-up with two strikers, 4-3-1-2.

Piatek and Cutrone are AC Milan’s only available centre forwards so far. Andre Silva will return to the Rossoneri after a flop season with Sevilla. The Portuguese will be given another chance to showcase his talent but for the right offer the Rossoneri won’t hesitate to sell him. At this point AC Milan need a new striker with Andrej Kramaric currently the number one target.

The Croatian star of Hoffenheim has enjoyed great success in Germany. He was also a key figure for Croatia in their run to the World Cup final in 2018, playing every single game. Hoffenheim signed Kramaric from Leicester for €11 million euros in 2016. The 28-year-old striker has been one of the best performers in Bundesliga for the past 3 years scoring 50 league goals in 113 appearances. His market value has risen to 30-40 million.

Sky Sport Germany reports that AC Milan have agreed personal terms with Andrej Kramaric and are negotiating a transfer fee with Hoffenheim. The German club will likely demand a figure of over 30 million. Kramaric is a player waned by Zvonimir Boban, the new chief football officer of AC Milan.

Kramaric’s agent, Vincenzo Cavalieri, confirmed the rumors. “AC Milan like Kramaric but he’s got many suitors, being one of the most prolific strikers in Europe. In Germany, he’s one of the few that have scored many goals in the last two season, despite him not playing for Bayern or Dortmund. However, the presence of Boban at Milan is an advantage“.
