Injury update ahead of Fiorentina clash: Optimism regarding Calhanoglu; Gabbia on standby

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have received some positive news regarding the fitness of Hakan Calhanoglu after he missed Monday night’s win over Torino, a report claims.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the Rossoneri No.10 is better and could start the game at the Stadio Artemio Franchi against Fiorentina on Saturday night.

Although he worked separately yesterday, the Turkey international is expected to rejoin the team today and train with the rest of the squad. This is good news for Stefano Pioli, who hopes to have his preferred playmaker available to support Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Meanwhile, MilanLive are reporting that Matteo Gabbia has a good chance of starting his first ever competitive game for Milan. Simon Kjaer is set to miss out entirely as he continues to recover from the muscle injury he sustained in Monday’s win, while Mateo Musacchio has a calf problem and may not be risked as he is not 100%.
