AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is expected to bring in Alexis Saelemaekers to the Milan attack for the game against Lazio in place of Junior Messias, a report claims.
As has been reported by Milan News, the Belgian winger will get the chance to impress from the first minute at the Stadio Olimpico.
Saelemaekers was in good form before his injury towards the end of 2022 and the coach is hoping that he can reproduce those performances now that he is back to full fitness.
Messias is generally relied on more by Pioli to play on the right wing but his form has been poor since returning from injury.
Milan have been knocked out of the Coppa Italia, lost the Supercoppa Italiana final and dropped many points in Serie A since 2023 began, meaning Pioli is left with no choice but to tinker with his starting eleven to see who can bring him a good performance.
