MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan could welcome four players back from injury in their weekend fixture against Napoli at the San Siro as they struggle with an injury crisis. The report notes that two players have made good progress in Hakan Calhanoglu and Theo Hernandez as they trained with the group yesterday. The report goes on to add that five other players had individual sessions as they look to gain more fitness ahead of any possible returns which include Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mario Mandzukic, Ante Rebic, Ismael Bennacer and Alessio Romagnoli.

Gazzetta dello Sport via MilanNews.it are reporting that Stefano Pioli will not likely want to risk the players early on similar to his use of Sandro Tonali versus Manchester United on Thursday. Milan are in dire need of points in Serie A after a few mis steps in 2021 hence the upcoming game against Napoli will be critical in ensuring Milan secure a top four finish.
