AC Milan are looking to improve the quality they have on the flanks and that is why they have targeted Marco Asensio, a report claims.
Milan have Rafael Leao on the left side who is having a breakout season despite his recent struggles and his back-up is a player of quality in Ante Rebic, but on the right side Alexis Saelemaekers and Junior Messias just are not cutting it any more.
According to what Tuttosport (via MilanNews) are reporting this morning, Milan would like to work in the summer to reinforce the attacking department on the right, to try to bring it to the level of the left.
The name that has emerged in the last few hours is that of Marco Asensio whose contract with Real Madrid expires in 2023 and he is only 26 years old, with plenty of experience and over 10 trophies to his name making him a very useful profile.
There could be some difficulties related to the current €5.5m net per season salary he receives which is not necessarily a problem to Maldini and Massara but his entourage have suggested that Asensio wants a pay rise from his next club.
In addition, there is competition from the Premier League where Asensio has many admirers and where the economic availability is certainly greater than in Serie A. Despite this, Milan boast great relations with Real Madrid which could help.
