Luca Marchetti via MilanNews.it is reporting that AC Milan will attempt to replace Spain winger Suso - who has left to join Sevilla - with Anderlecht youngster Alexis Saelemaekers. The 20 year old has 2 goals and 4 assists so far this seasons and has been a regular starter for the Belgian outfit since the 2018/19 season. He is also part of the Belgium U21 national side where he has 10 appearances under his belt. The youngster plays predominantly as right midfielder but is flexible enough to play further up as a right winger or more centrally as a central attacking midfielder.

The midfielder reportedly is intrigued by the Milan project and his agent is pushing for him to join the club. What remains to be seen is whether or not Milan will put forward and offer as well as the value of that offer. The club would be happy to acquire the player either in the winter or the summer mercato.
