Nikola Kalinic Officially Joins AC Milan


Nikola Kalinic is officially a member of AC Milan after the rossoneri made a move to obtain him on a loan with an option to buy.

The 29-year-old Croatian international has agreed to play his football at the San Siro for four years and it is reported that Milan paid Fiorentina €25 million for the striker.

Now that Kalinic passed his medical on Monday, he will most likely make his debut for the Milan squad when they play Cagliari in a Serie A match on Sunday.

The striker first caught the eye of many big European clubs during his time with Hajduk Split in his native Croatia, where he appeared in close to 80 games and scored 44 goals with the club.

From there, he spent two years with Blackburn Rovers before joining Ukranian side Dnipro in 2011, where he amassed 125 total appearances and found the back of the net 49 times.

After four years at Dnipro, the Croatian striker made the move to the Serie A and joined the Viola in 2015.

Last season was a breakthrough season for Kalinic, scoring 20 goals total in the year, which earned him the top goal scorer honor for the club.

With Milan making massive signings, bringing in 11 new faces to the club, they will be anticipating big things from this revamped squad.
