Bennacer assessed daily

Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer continues to struggle with a muscle injury and a possible return will be assessed daily.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports the Algeria international continues to treat a stiff flexor tendon muscle, in what has been an unfortunate season for the midfielder.

The 23-year-old has only played 11 times in Serie A this term and the newspaper claims Milan are evaluating his progress daily.

Bennacer missed eight games in the championship between December and January and was back against Bologna on January 30.

He was then out with fever against Crotone the following match, before he returned to the starting line-up in the shocking 2-0 defeat to Spezia.

Bennacer missed the 3-0 defeat to Inter last weekend and continues to work on his recovery. Milan have not set a return date for the former Empoli man, but monitor his development daily.
