CM: Luis Alberto could be the missing piece in Milan’s Scudetto bid but Lazio make things difficult

By Oliver Fisher -

Luis Alberto continues to be on the fringes of Lazio’s plans and he could provide a big boost to AC Milan’s Scudetto hopes, though it remains a difficult dream.

Calciomercato.com gives Luis Alberto a score of 8 for his first half of the season so far, a rating that he is justifying even though he is only getting chances off the bench from head coach Maurizio Sarri. Against Genoa he came on and in half an hour he created two assists, while in Venezia he had only a quarter of an hour available and scored a magnificent goal.

The Spaniard has become a Lazio reserve, yet he is one of the most talented players in the league when it comes to creativity and end product, but Sarri prefers the more diligent Toma Basic.

Luis Alberto could still have a big say in Serie A and Milan have been linked, while the report adds that he could also relaunch the Rossoneri in the Scudetto race, however it will be a difficult pursuit – in fact ‘almost impossible’ – because of the high asking price.

    He is 29 and a bench player

    During last months we are being linked with worse and worse players.

    January will soon answer whether we presign Kamara and Belotti or go for crap Lazio players

    A moment of truth if the project is about getting back into european elite in 3-4 years or just being satisfied to be equals to Porto Roma* Sevilla

    *although if roma does not bankrupt or sell their players they will be a real power in 3 years

      Luis Alberto is a great player, the only reason he doesn’t play is because Sarri doesn’t use a number 10.
      His stats are quite good:
      Serie A
      20/21 9 goals 2 assists
      19/20 6 goals 15 assists
      17/18 11 goals 14 assists

      That’s way better than Brahim and Calhanoglu provided us. And look at Calhanoglu now, the guy is in the form of his life.

      Belotti is crap, never rated him, I would rather have Scamacca or even get Cutrone back. The ideal striker for us would be Breel Embolo. Big, fast, powerful target man that can score and provide assists. But Scamacca would be first choice. Send Brahim back to Madrid and get Barak from Hellas.

      1. Stam says:

        Embolo is a tank, but hes not a prolific goalscorer.

        I dont claim Belotti is one – although can be when in form. Hes great defensively. But the best about him is that he is in prime and free.

        A solution for 2 years and backup for third while we gather funds for a great forward. Nketiah could be risked too, potentially could be a starter.

        If Napoli or Benfica dont sell their forwards next 2 years – those would be my goal signings.

      Just look at how often Belotti gets injured… Now imagine what Milan coaching and medical staff would do to him. They would either end his career, leaving him crippled or kill him in a matter of weeks, if not days.

      If we have any decency, we should never sign him. For both his and our sake. If he knows what’s good for him, he will stay as far away from Milan as possible.

      I like the guy, but he wont survive Milan.

        Bro… you made me laugh our loud with this 🤣😂😆
        Beloti isn’t a bad idea though that’s if Milan’s medical team won’t kill him as shiva said🤣🤣
