Despite his excellent recent goalscoring run, Samu Castillejo’s future at AC Milan is far from certain and his replacement has reportedly been identified.
According to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the position of Castillejo remains in the balance despite the fact he has scored three goals in his last four appearances for the club.
Injuries and a lack of consistency have meant that the Spaniard is somewhat of a divisive figure among the fan base, with some arguing he is a more than capable deputy on the right wing, while others believe it is better to cash in while he still has value.
The paper goes on to claim that in the event of Castillejo’s departure, the Rossoneri have already got his replacement in mind. It should come as no surprise that it is Florian Thauvin of Marseille, a player who has been heavily linked over the last few months.
