AC Milan are looking for a new No.10 ahead of the upcoming season, following the struggles of Brahim Diaz, and Charles De Ketelaere appears to be the primary target. He fits the bill perfectly, a report claims.
In the second half of this past season, Stefano Pioli opted to play Franck Kessie in the No.10 role due to the struggles of Brahim Diaz. For the upcoming campaign, though, the manager wants to have creativity in that role.
According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), Diaz will remain at the club until his loan expires in 2023. Previous reports suggested that he could make an early return to Real Madrid, but that won’t be the case.
In any case, as the newspaper continues, the Rossoneri want to sign De Ketelaere. He has a price tag of €40m, which perhaps can be lowered slightly, but it would be a safe investment for the future given the Belgian’s offensive qualities.
