MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan are looking for a new striker to plan the eventual exit of veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic as well as to take some of the load of his back while he still plays for the club. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are reportedly looking at PSV Eindhoven youngster Donyell Malen. The 21 year old striker is represented by the agent of Ibrahimovic, Alessio Romagnoli and Gianluigi Donnarumma; Mino Raiola. The striker has 8 goals and 3 assists in all competitions this season.

Milan are also considering the signing of Luka Jovic from Real Madrid after exploring him as an option in the summer. The deal would be complicated as the Serbia international costs a lot but could be allowed to leave on loan. Jovic has only played 208 minutes of football this season and is yet to score a goal or provide an assist.

Milan currently only have Lorenzo Colombo as an out-and-out striker on the bench. Ante Rebic and Rafael Leao are alternates but they are both wingers who adapt to the role.
