AC Milan Will Target A Right Winger This Summer As Samu Castillejo Could Exit

An important investment is needed here to fill one of the worst gaps in the squad.

Pietro Balzano Prota is reporting that AC Milan are already looking to the summer and that a right winger is atop the list of priorities. The report notes that Samu Castillejo will likely be put on the market after three season at the club as he has not been able to have as big an impact as needed. He was largely overshadowed by Suso and now fights for playing time with Alexis Saelemaekers hence he is by no means critical to the squad. Castillejo has 10 goals and 13 assists for Milan in 103 games for the club.

Carlo Pellegatti on his Youtube Channel via MilanLive.it has said:

“Certainly there will be a right winger, who will be joined by Saelemaekers.”

Milan have already been linked heavily with Florian Thauvin from Marseille and Otavio from Porto who can fill that position but both those tracks seem to have shut now as the players will likely remain at their current clubs.
