ML: AC Milan interested in striker swap deal involving Pellegri

Pietro Pellegri could join Genoa in January and AC Milan are interested in a swap deal that involves Felipe Caicedo.

Elliott Management have decided that the big investment in attack will be made next summer. Barring sensational twists, Milan will not spend for a new center forward. Ante Rebic, who will be back after a long stop, and Olivier Giroud will be considered AC Milan’s January signings.

That doesn’t mean that a new striker will not arrive. Ibrahimovic, Giorud and Pellegri have often suffered injuries this season forcing Pioli to adapt other players in the centre forward position. Despite their physical problems the first two have produced goals. The biggest question mark is linked to Pietro Pellegri. The Italian striker continues to be affected by injuries and has offered little contribution in attack so far.

Pellegri’s adventure at AC Milan could come to an end in January. The 20-year-old has found little game time and is looking for more opportunities. Pietro Pellegri could return to Genoa when the winter window opens. reports that Pellegri can join his first club in exchange for Felipe Caicedo.

Genoa are very interested in Pellegri. Coach Shevchenko has asked for new signings in attack and at the same time Genoa are willing to part ways with Felipe Caicedo. The 33-year-old powerful striker has offers from Turkey but would prefer to stay in Serie A.

Caicedo’s adventure at Genoa has been unfortunate. The Ecuador striker has made only 5 appearances, scoring once and providing 3 assists. Despite his physical problems the qualities of the former Lazio are certainly not in question. Caicedo was an impact sub at the Biancocelesti making 139 appearances in four years under Inzaghi.

Being able to change the outcome of a match is certainly a rare feature. Caicedo could be an excellent third option in attack. Both clubs are interested in a swap deal but any potential transfer must have the green light of Monaco, Pellegri’s parent club.
