Atlético de Madrid and AC Milan have reached an agreement over the transfer of 30-year-old striker Nikola Kalinić. The Croat will join our club on a three-year deal.
A veteran forward, Kalinić has spent the past few years of his career in Italy. He had a successful stint with Fiorentina, where he scored 33 goals in 84 matches, before signing for Milan in the 2017 summer transfer window. For the Rossoneri, he played 41 matches last season. Before that, he played for Hajduk Split, NK Istra, HNK Sibenik, Blackburn Rovers and Dnipro.
He made his debut for the Croatian National Team in 2008 and has scored 15 times in 42 matches.
With a great aerial presence (1,87 metres tall), Kalinic is a force to be reckoned with in set pieces and aerial plays. He's also good at holding up the ball and is great at shooting from a distance.
Welcome to Atlético, Nikola!
