Gianluca di Marzio via is noting that AC Milan will look to deploy new signing Alexis Saelemaekers as a right back as opposed to a right winger for the future. We already discussed and drew this conclusion when we broke down what the Belgium U21 brought to Milan here. The new signing already made his debut against Hellas Verona last weekend and could look to compete with Calabria and Conti for playing time.

He was initially thought to be a direct replacement for Suso as the backup for Samu Castillejo but his versatility and defensive adeptness allows him to swap between the two positions.
