Pellegatti suggests Eredivisie top scorer could be ‘last minute’ option for Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Journalist Carlo Pellegatti believes that there could be a last-minute option for AC Milan in their search for a striker, namely Vangelis Pavlidis of AZ Alkmaar.

In his latest column for MilanNews, Pellegatti speaks about Milan’s hunt for a striker and seems to suggest that Hugo Ekitike of Paris Saint-Germain is the number one option at present.

The 21-year-old Frenchman is described as being ‘a plausible lead’ but ‘any negotiation with PSG does not appear simple’ because there must be an agreement found on formula.

Pellegatti adds to ‘beware of last minute entries’ and one of them he puts forward is Vangelis Pavlidis of AZ Alkmaar. The 24-year-old was linked with Milan earlier in the window, and seems to still be on the radar therefore.

In 2021-222 he scored 25 goals and added 7 assists in 51 games across all competitions for AZ, while last season he had 22 goals and 14 assists in 40 games. So far this season, he has 3 goals and an assist in 2 Eredivisie appearances.

  1. If we sign this Striker he willbe new Marco V Basten.
    Stop all otther Options except letting our Competitors go wrong

    Sign him ASAP in this Month

    1. There will never be a new van basten, sure we have had many great strikers after his retirement but non really comes close to his greatness in my view.

  2. I don’t think he will be the next Van Basten, but he’s a really interesting idea and not one I thought of before. He’s 24 so at the age of moving to a bigger team.

    He has two years left on his contract (June 2025) though so this is far more complicated than a player with one year left. There could be enough time left, but I have a feeling Saelesmaekers will have to go permanently and so will Origi.

  3. I’d made mention of this exact striker here before.. and it shows Milan got a very good talent search department. If we get this Greek striker, it’s game over for seria A. We definitely going to win it. He’s a super striker

  4. I’m not sold on Ekitike. Looks so skinny and frail…. I don’t know, man. maybe the scouting is solid, or maybe this guy is just a distraction.

  5. Vangelis Pavlidis of AZ Alkmaar is that good then what are they waiting for ?

    Buy him and lets get 2022 & 2023 season glory
