As rumors swirl around the future of striker Carlos Bacca, Genoa’s Leonardo Pavoletti remains a legitimate option for the Rossoneri this summer.
According to today’s edition of Corriere della Sera, A.C. Milan’s attack will see significant changes this summer. With new manager Vincenzo Montella and a pending sale of the club by Silvio Berlusconi, this is no shock.
Genoa striker Leonardo Pavoletti has been linked with the red and black for what seems like months since the Serie A season concluded. The Italian is considered to be a legitimate option for Milan’s attack, but not as a replacement for the club’s leading scorer from last season, Carlos Bacca. The Colombian’s agent has been in discussions with the likes of West Ham, Atletico Madrid and domestic rival Napoli who have some uncertainty as to whether Gonzalo Higuain can be retained.
The 27-year old Pavoletti managed to score 14 goals for the Rossoblu in 15-16 and was in contention to make Antonio Conte’s Euro 2016 squad. It’s obvious Pavoletti appeals to the Lombard club, but it’s unclear if they can come to an agreement unless they downsize their overcrowded attack first.
