Vitiello: Offers arriving from England and France for two Milan attackers

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan have been receiving offers for two attacking players that could be set to depart the club this summer, a report claims. 

As has been reported by Antonio Vitiello on Twitter, offers have been arriving from both English and French clubs for Divock Origi and Charles De Ketelaere.

The former is a player that Milan definitely would like to sell this summer given he arrived for free a year ago and has seriously underwhelmed.

As for De Ketelaere, the situation is more complicated as he was a big signing last summer who failed to make an impact, but he is a young player that they could still show faith in.

There is more scope for him to leave on loan rather than on a permanent deal, but it is not yet clear what sort of interest is coming from the English and French clubs in question, who have not been named.

  1. Put CDK up top where he played for Brugge when he had the best season of his young career.
    He isn’t a n10 and he isn’t a winger, since Pioli likes fast 1v1 wingers.
    Try him as a 9 for 1 season and if he is still ass then sell him next summer. It’s not like his value will get any lower than it is now.
    He has all the physical tools to play as a striker

    1. You must have not watched too many games last season as CDK was one of the weakest players on the ball. I still believe he will become better as he grown into italian football but he definitely doesnt have the”physical tools” to play up top as of now.

    2. No he does not. He is not fast enough. He is not strong enough. He’s not good in the air. If they can get anything for him they should jump at the chance.

      1. I think I agree with this at this point. He had no aerial game, no heading, and certainly doesn’t win many shoulder to shoulder batters. It’s like the antithesis of a striker. We’re bringing in so many midfielders and wingers that it just doesn’t seem as though there will be space for him in those areas. Just try to recoup as much of his value as possible and move on.

    3. Actually now is the best time to sell. Milan could get 20m€+ for him.
      Another season of flop his value will be maybe 10-15M. He does not fit in piolis game.
      Neither does adli. Another year won’t change that

    4. Physical tools means height, big body, big frame and for a big dude he is pretty fast.
      You can get stronger by working out, you can teach how to be good in areal duels and hold up play, but you can’t teach someone to grow to be 6’4.
      I did watch his games last season, I also watched some of his games in his last season at brugge. In the best season at brugge, the season that convinced Milan to sign him for 35 mil he played up top not in the midfield where Pioli played him at Milan.

      1. I don’t care where he played, he showed nothing last season and he was given plenty of opportunity. Not only that but a terrible attitude. Every time he made a mistake or lost the ball he would hang his head and walk rather than try to win it back. Don’t need players that feel sorry for themselves. Get something for him while you still can.

    5. Physical tools he might have, but the one thing lacking, and maybe the most important one if we’re talking about a striker, is the killer instinct. Not only because he missed many chances last season, but I just don’t see it in him. That hunger and instinct.

      What he can really exploit is his vision. I once said in this forum, that an example of what he can aspire to become is a player like Guti. And don’t get me wrong, prime Guti was phenomenal back then. Somehow how CdK play reminds me of him. Guti was also utilized in many different positions. So maybe, if we really want to try, don’t give him another advanced role / position.

  2. I am big beliver in CdK. Give him the same patience, and the same amount of chances and playing time as Brahim, and you will have a top, top player on your hands.

  3. He need to build his muscle like brahim if still want to play in pioli high press system . His body balance are too weak

  4. CDK is gonna be lit next season. I’ll believe that this has to be his season before I give up on him next year.

    Remember ppl wanted to sell Leao after one season and compared him to Niang? Well go figure.
