A Milan winger Samuel Chukwueze is expected to be back in training at Milanello on Wednesday, which puts him in contention for involvement against Stade Rennes in the Europa League on Thursday night.
As has been reported by Milan News, the Nigerian winger is back in Italy and will be reporting for training tomorrow, having missed the Tuesday session in which Stefano Pioli was given an award for 100 wins in Serie A as a coach.
Chukwueze has been away at the Africa Cup of Nations for the past month. His side managed to get all the way to the final but they were beaten 2-1 by hosts Ivory Coast, failing to really show their best form when it mattered.
He will not be in as good a mood as he might have been if they had won the trophy, but he will have to put that behind him for the rest of the season.
Pioli is still expected to stick with Christian Pulisic and Rafael Leao on the wings against Rennes on Thursday night at San Siro, but Chukwueze could get minutes from the bench to get him settled back in.
Chukwueze started the final in Ivory Coast but did not show the best of his abilities.
