Samu Castillejo is a target of Milan, but Villarreal want €25m for the winger.
Tiémoué Bakayoko will not be the last signing in this mercato as the Rossoneri are also looking to get a winger (and perhaps another midfielder too).
According to Sky’s Gianluca Di Marzio, after closing the deal for Bakayoko with Chelsea (loan with option to buy, total cost of €40m), Milan have turned their intentions to Samu Castillejo of Villarreal.
Di Marzio says that the Diavolo are interested in involving Carlos Bacca in the negotiations and in fact have offered €18m plus the Colombian for Castillejo, who they’d like to take on loan with obligation to buy. Villarreal, however, rejected the offer as they want €25m and wish not to include Bacca in the talks.
Milan are at work to try to find an agreement for the 23-year-old winger who can play on the right and left sides of the pitch and can therefore be of cover for both Suso and Hakan Çalhanoğlu.
