With Alexis Saelemaekers going down with a serious knee injury in the Empoli game, Milan have started to revisit the possibility of adding a right winger in January. They thought about it last summer but ultimately preferred investing in other positions.
The Rossoneri remain keen on Hakim Ziyech. He could be available for relatively cheap if he doesn’t win over new coach Graham Potter. However, his large salary was an issue in past windows. The reigning champions are also contemplating some youngsters for the position, Calciomercato reports.
In particular, Milan have laid their eyes on Midtjylland winger Gustav Isaksen. He got off to a strong start, tallying 5 goals and assisting once in 17 appearances across all competitions. He shined in particular versus Lazio, giving fits to the opposing defense in a stunning 5-1 win.
The 21-year-old has a €5M valuation, which will rise if he continues to fare well. He has scored 16 times in 108 total appearances with the Danish side, where he has spent the entirety of his young career. The Rossoneri are mulling making an attempt in the short term.
Our Take on Milan Considering Adding a Right Winger
Saelemaekers went down with a pretty common injury. While unfortunate, it shouldn’t be a reason to panic, and he will be back in January, if not even in early November. On the other hand, such role is one of the few where the Scudetto winners don’t have either a stud or a starlet with high upside. They will probably address it at some point, more likely at the end of the season than in the winter.
