Leao to push Piatek out

Milan could be planning changes as they visit Bologna on Sunday evening, as Rafael Leao was tested in place of Krzysztof Piatek.

It kicks off on Sunday at 19.45 GMT, click here for a match preview.

According to the latest training ground reports, coach Stefano Pioli has been using a line-up with Leao at the centre of the attack, flanked by Lucas Calhanoglu and Suso.

This would push Piatek down to the bench and further enflame reports of a possible return to Genoa on loan in January.

Leao was a summer purchase from Lille, via Sporting CP, for €23m plus 20 per cent of a future sale fee.

The Portuguese forward has made 11 competitive appearances for Milan, scoring one goal and providing one assist.
