Milan Mulling Reunion with Versatile Roma Attacker

On top of finding a new striker, Milan will have to rework their offensive reserves in the summer and are considering bringing back a familiar face, Stephan El Shaarawy. His contract with Roma expires in June.

Per TuttoSport (via Calciomercato), his side has yet to tender a renewal. The Rossoneri could turn to him to deputize Rafael Leao. He’d replace either Ante Rebic or Divock Origi, or both, as they have struggled to stay healthy.

The return of El Shaarawy would also help Milan with the UEFA lists since he grew up in Italy. He previously played for them from 2011 to 2015, scoring 21 times in 83 appearances. On the other hand, the winger has often voiced his desire to stay put in the Italian capital.

“After the end of the season and the Europa League final, I will sit down with the club to discuss my extension for sure. The directors know what my intentions are.”

Inter and some foreign teams are keeping tabs on the 30-year-old as well, the publication informs.

Our Take on Milan and El Shaarawy

He still has some juice left and is an ideal super sub. His injury history is a little checkered too but still better than their current backups. It doesn’t hurt that he has gotten some reps as a wingback either, although that would be of little use for the Rossoneri. It may come down to money, but Roma would be wise to try to keep him since they already have multiple and more significant roles to address.
