AC Milan were looking to loan out young striker Marko Lazetic this summer but now the plans have changed, according to a report.
According to Calciomercato.com, the arrival of Divock Origi to strengthen the attacking department risks reducing the amount of possible playing time – which was already limited – for Lazetic in the senior side.
The Serbian teenage was the protagonist of a good preseason campaign and the feeling is that he is developing well after his first months of adaptation at Milanello.
Despite this, Milan had the plan of sending him out on a dry loan for the 2022-23 season so he could get regular playing time in a senior squad in Italy during what is a crucial phase in his development.
However, the management have been met with the ‘surprising’ choice by Lazetic that he does not want to go out on loan and instead wants to stay and compete for a spot in the rotations. Now, the probability is that he will remain.
