New reports have suggested that AC Milan have entered the race for Croatian Forward Andrej Kramaric. At first Milan’s interest was simply a rumour but in recent days Kramaric’s agent has confirmed these reports. It seems that Milan have concreted interest in the prolific Bundesliga forward. However Kramaric’s agent also stated that almost half of Europe is interested in his client’s talents. With the recent addition of Zvonimir Boban as Chief Football Officer, this could serve as a big advantage to Milan.
Both Kramaric and Boban are Croatian with the latter possibly using his connections as an advantage to try and secure the players signature reports which imply that the fee for Kramaric could be around the 30-40 million Euro range. Last season in the Bundesliga for Hoffenheim Kramaric tallied 17 goals and 4 assists on 30 appearances. In the Champion League Kramaric was prolific at getting 5 goals and 1 assist on 6 appearances. Another upside about Kramaric is that he has World Cup experience since last summer he helped Croatia reach the finals in the tournament. Kramaric is a versatile talent and would have an impact with the new system rumoured coach Marco Giampaolo is likely to implement.
