Tavolieri: Real Betis and West Ham eyeing out-of-favour Milan winger

By Oliver Fisher -

One of the AC Milan players who has an uncertain future at present is Alexis Saelemaekers, and he reportedly has interest from two clubs abroad.

Milan have revitalised their right wing department this summer with the signings of Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal, Christian Pulisic from Chelsea and even Luka Romero on a free transfer.

That means Saelemaekers – who was often left on the bench last season with Junior Messias starting – could find himself even further down the pecking order in 2023-24.

According to journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Real Betis are interested in a loan with option to buy deal, and the LaLiga side are a destination that appeals to the Belgian.

However, Saelemaekers is also part of the wish list that West Ham United have built for the right wing position. Milan are still trying to find a solution for the player, with more developments expected to come over the coming days and weeks.

  1. He never should have played RW to begin with. Keep him. He is a useful, loyal and energetic player who depending on the system could play RB, RWB or RM. Perfect on the bench.

    1. I totally agree. He is also great for the group , is still young and can improve further.
      I will never forget him dancing in a packed San Siro to’ Pioli is on fire’!

  2. He’s valued at €15m on Tranfermarkt. I don’t think we could get that, but if a sale helps fund a striker or dm, we should be all for it.

  3. I don’t think he should be sold instead he should be given a chance to prove himself after all he helped us last season.
    I wonder why they keep calling or addressing Pulisic as RW. Yes, I know he’s versatile but he is a better AM than RW. Right now our focus should be on Giroud because age is telling gradually on him, Colombo and Okafor should be given game time ahead of Giroud as some of our problems last season came from that department with loads of missed chances.

    1. Saelemaekers, proving himself doesn’t mean it must be at RW position it can also be as RB see what Everton did with Alex Iwobi.

  4. Now we have the right players to play a 4-2-3-1 formation, Pioli is trying to stick to a 4-3-3 formation. Please, someone should tell Pioli to use Chukwueze well and send Pulisic to the middle where he’s better of

    1. Agreed, Pulisic is right footed and likes to cut in. He is much more suited and effective as a LW or CAM. But, we all know who our stubborn manager is. I feel like we are trying to force this 433

      1. @Kaka, Exactly. The man is very stubborn.
        Playing Pulisic as a CAM will give Leao and Chukwueze more space for flexibility to do exploits

  5. I know people say he’s a useful player, but we really need to raise funds for another midfielder and unfortunately his sale would directly help that. I would say nothing less than 10-12 million.

    We do need to thin our squad too. We are loaded at RW.

  6. FINALLY! Getting rid of Saladmaker!

    And no, we don’t keep average players and move them to RB or whatever.
    You people never learn:

    Saladmaker = dud. Sell!
