Milan Might Have to Make Tough Decisions on the Fringes

Milan have been looking for a buyer for Divock Origi all summer, but his departure isn’t imminent despite the short time left in the window. The striker faces the risk of being excluded from the Serie A and UEFA lists should he stay put, thus spending at least six months on the stands, Calciomercato informs.

It’d be an expensive call by the Rossoneri since the marksman earns €4M per season. He has three more years on his contract. He wasn’t called up for the opener against Bologna, along with fellow castaways Alexis Saelemaekers, Fode Ballo-Touré, and Mattia Caldara.

The Belgian winger is closer to leaving Milan, but his transfer to Betis Sevilla is stalling. West Ham are also keen, but no concrete offer has arrived so far. Instead, the Rossoneri will probably be able to find a collocation for Mattia Caldara, who dropped further down the depth chart due to the arrival of Marco Pellegrino. He’s been offered to Frosinone, Nicolò Schira relays.

Instead, the acquisition of the Argentine talent is unlikely to lead to Simon Kjaer’s departure. Despite some interest and an overcrowded backline, the Rossoneri brass wants to keep ahold of the veteran. The addition could interrupt the search for a new fullback, even if Ballo-Touré departed as Milan wish. His move to either Werder Bremen or Bologna ground to a halt.
