The 23-year-old striker starts alongside Stephan El Shaarawy, who went some way to relieving the pressure on his trainer with both goals in the 2-0 win over Cagliari last weekend.
They are joined in the front three by Kevin-Prince Boateng, who returns after missing out against Cagliari due to suspension.
Urby Emanuelson and Riccardo Montolivo make way for Antonio Nocerino and Massimo Ambrosini in the Rossoneri midfield, while Mattia De Sciglio continues in defence.
Parma are without the suspended Jaime Valdes, while Fabiano Santacroce and Rafaelle Palladino also sit out the match through injury.
Dorlan Pabon and Amauri will do the heavy lifting up front for the home side, who have scored only five goals so far this season.
Parma (3-5-2): Mirante; Zaccardo, Paletta, Lucarelli; Rosi, Musacci, Ninis, Galloppa, Gobbi; Pabon, Amauri.
AC Milan (4-2-3-1): Abbiati; Abate, Zapata, Yepes, De Sciglio; De Jong, Ambrosini; Nocerino, Boateng, Bojan, El Shaarawy.
