Pellegatti urges Milan to explore an agreement of 15 to 18 million euros for the Montpellier star to combat the crisis

AC Milan are facing something of a crisis in the attacking department heading into the January window and Carlo Pellegatti has suggested a name for management to explore signing.

Milan find themselves in a difficult situation where there are currently no healthy natural forwards available for Stefano Pioli as preparation continues for the resumption of the Serie A season on January 4 with the trip to face Salernitana.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic continues to recover from the knee operation he underwent last May, while Olivier Giroud is on vacation after reaching the World Cup final and won’t be back until after Christmas, Divock Origi has contracted a problem with his flexors and Marko Lazetic (18) has mostly played with Primavera.

Carlo Pellegatti spoke about Stefano Pioli’s latest injury crisis in an editorial for MilanNews and suggested a signing that could fix things not only no, but also for the future.

“Now perhaps it would be important to reflect on the opportunity to strengthen that role as well. Personally, I still have nightmares when I remember that distant Milan-Manchester on March 18, 2021, ”he began.

“Stefano Pioli deployed this attack of fear, due to a total emergency in the attacking department: Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Krunic and the striker, as a false nine, Castillejo. The Milanese coach could opt, as a solution for the first game of 2023, in Salerno, for CDK as a central forward, a role that the Belgian talent has already occupied, successfully, on many occasions at Bruges.

“The alternative could be the usual Rebic, as long as his physical condition improves a lot, probably affected by the heavy loads imposed by the AC Milan coach. It is difficult, in fact it seems almost impossible to see Giroud -who will return only a few days before his World Cup commitments- ready from the first minute in the Arechi.

“Today, the squad can count on the Frenchman at the center of attack, who, however, can no longer be forced to work overtime as in the months of September and October. In Origi, he has been unemployed due to a muscular problem that will keep him out for a few weeks, but above all he has already been hit by sudden physical ailments.

“On Ibrahimovic, we hope to be ready soon, but certainly not before the end of January. Let’s certainly not forget the young Marco Lazetic, but it seems too early to entrust him with the heavy task of leading the Milan attack.

“Also, as mentioned, the CDK and Rebic solutions. After these thoughts related to too many variables, what is the solution? Well, the plenipotentiaries of the market will thoroughly evaluate the issues related to the center forward.

“Perhaps some opportunities linked to the transfer market of January 2023 should be examined soon. The ideal would perhaps be an Italian reinforcement, also available for the UEFA squad list, facing the Champions League commitments.

“However, I would like to point out a foreign name, which first appeared on my YouTube channel last Thursday. It could be the new Kolo Mouani. He is French, was born on January 2, 2003 and belongs to Jorge Mendes’ team.

“His name is ELYE WAHI, he plays in Montpellier, in Ligue 1. He played as a starter, ATTENTION, ATTENTION TO THE NUMBERS, 14 games and scored 6 goals. He has an overall average of one goal every 177 minutes. He is the third youngest player to score ten goals in Ligue 1. Ahead of Wahi, only Mbappè and Dembele, behind him a certain Thierry Henry.

“The cost is around 15/18 million. I watched the game against Lyon on October 24 and he scored a beautiful goal, thanks to a splendid overhead kick, which made me jump on the sofa. A masterpiece. Go see it.
