CM: Milan already thinking of signing a forward in January – Club Brugge winger remains a target

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is once again having to cope with an attacking department that keeps battling multiple injuries, which could force Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara to intervene in January. write how it is paradoxically the right flank that has been the most stable in terms of selection, with Junior Messias and Alexis Saelemaekers having been alternated and each having made vital contributions.

In the playmaker role there is Charles De Ketelaere, Brahim Diaz and Yacine Adli. However, on the left side Rafael Leao has had to work overtime, practically always starting because of Ante Rebic’s injury issues. It is the same for Olivier Giroud at centre-forward too, with Divock Origi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic out.

For this reason Maldini and Massara could run for cover as early as January, perhaps even by reigniting the talks with Club Brugge for Noa Lang who is a player that the directors are big admirers of.

Bart Verhaeghe – the president of the Belgian club – gave some interesting background on Lang during an interview with

“Noa received several offers, some clubs talked to him, like Milan or Leeds. For us he had the green light to leave, but in the end he chose to stay. Milan then signed Charles De Ketelaere, but there was a moment when they could have both. Lang is a very selective guy: he received an 18 million offer from Lille but he turned it down and told us he wanted to stay. Now we are focusing a lot on his character and his class.”

Milan could resume negotiations in January with the hope of adding another young talent to an attack that needs quality but above all availability.

  1. Why Lang can play as a forward, his best position is on the wings, specifically LW. He’s not a classic forward and would be more like Rebic rather than Ibra or Giroud.

    IMHO, it would be better for Milan to sign a real FW rather than ANOTHER false nine. Milan is going to need someone to take over when Ibra and Giroud retire.

  2. Get Lang and sell Rebic. Love the guy but it’s time to have someone who’s fully reliable. Not someone who scores 2 goals on a match just to miss the other 4-5 matches. Been that way for way too long.

  3. By January, the health status of Ibra, Rebic, and Origi will be much better known and Milan might be looking for winger support for Leo and co. In the meantime, CDK could move to CF/LW to fill gaps and you could see Adli/Diaz share the CAM spot until bodies can heal. Giroud must get some rest/limit to time or he runs a greater risk of burnout. But Giroud looks strong and healthy.

    1. It wouldn’t kill us to have decent backups, for the past two seasons we needed Rebic to give Leao a resting time he has been out injured. I love Rebic but we need available players at least 90% of the time.

  4. Rebic is a powerful player in Milan. He is the fulcrum of modern day Milan. Together with him, we are going to win the Scudetto and our 8th UEFA Champions league trophy. Join AC Milan global fan base on +233248637248

  5. Please no… in the Belgium competition he is known as an egocentric kid who thinks hes the best while he’s nowhere near as good as he thinks he is. He would be equal to saelemaekers at best

    Even at the Dutch NT they don’t want his toxic behaviour and irregular performance.
