Stephan El Shaarawy is happy to play anywhere for AC Milan coach Max Allegri.

The striker has had an inconsistent start to the season.

"Am I ready to play as a second striker? Of course I am," he told the Gazzetta dello Sport. "If there is the need for it, then I'm also ready to play as a Trequartista which I did for a bit at Padova.

"I have a very good relationship with boss Allegri, who has been concerned about my health in recent weeks.

"I'm happy that he stayed with us."
