AC Milan’s recruitment team have their eye on the Belgian league as the possible home of more exciting attacking talent, a report claims.
When Alexis Saelemaekers arrived from Anderlecht on an initial six-month loan deal there were certainly some fans and pundits who were sceptical about the impact that such a young player with so little experience could have at Milan.
Now, he is a virtually immovable member of the starting line-up and has proven his worth, becoming a perfect symbol of the Elliott Management youth-led project as well as a source of pride for the work the scouting department do.
Calciomercato.com reports that Milan – after the success of the Saelemaekers operation – are always looking with particular attention to the Belgian league and they have two players on their wish list.
Under the magnifying glass of the Rossoneri scouting department are Club Brugge duo Noa Lang (22) and Charles De Katelaere (20). The former racked up 16 goals and 7 assists in 29 league games last season and plays predominantly on the wing, while the latter is a playmaker who already has 4 goals and 2 assists in 8 league games this season.
