AC Milan Are Continuing to Push for Charles De Ketelaere Deal
A Strong Fit
De Ketelaere is a very promising attacking talent. Milan, although the reigning champions of Italy, need attacking help. Divock Origi was brought in to supply attacking help alongside Olivier Giroud, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss a large chunk of the season. De Ketelaere is a versatile attacker, being able to play as a centre-forward as well as an attacking midfielder. He can provide relief for both the strikers and the inconsistent Brahim Diaz.

The chase for De Ketelaere has dragged on for quite some time now. It’s clear that the Rossoneri value the player.

Although young and inexperienced outside of Belgium, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see him earn an immediate role with Milan. Pierre Kalulu and Sandro Tonali, two young players with little experience on the biggest stage, blossomed for Milan this past season. The Rossoneri have plenty of youth and uses them often. It would be no surprise to see De Ketelaere fall next in line.
