Manuele Baiocchini speaking to Sky Italia via MilanNews.it is reporting that AC Milan are now focused on bringing in a young striker following the completion of the agreement with Chelsea for Olivier Giroud. Milan are working on Kaio Jorge from Santos to arrive on a free transfer in the winter window. The report notes that Lorenzo Colombo will be evaluated in the pre season to see if he can be fit for the first half of the season.

MilanNews.it are reporting that Milan will either get Jorge for a small fee in this transfer window or for free in the next one. Ibrahimovic and Giroud will dominate the playing time but could both be susceptible to injury and may be less effective in games where speed is needed. Moreover, the idea to bring a young striker is vital for the coming seasons and the earlier a striker comes in and gets to adjust, the better.
