OFFICIAL: Milan sign Fiorentina striker Nikola Kalinic from Fiorentina on loan with obligation to buy with contract until June 30th, 2021.
The deal is reportedly worth €25m, and Kalinic will wear no.7 shirt.
Kalinic has never been a ‘superstar’ in Serie A since joining the Viola two seasons ago, but he’s been a consistent goal scorer. In his first season, he bagged 13 goals and provided four assists in 28 games, then improved his stats in his second campaign, scoring 20 and adding four assists in 32 appearances.
The 29-year-old becomes Milan’s 11th summer signing of a remarkable transfer window.
The big-spending club have already signed Leonardo Bonucci, Andre Silva, Andrea Conti, Hakan Calhanoglu, Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez, Lucas Biglia, Franck Kessie, Antonio Donnarumma and Fabio Borini this summer, as they attempt to challenge both at home and abroad.
