AC Milan have been joined by Wolves in the race to land Real Madrid playmaker Oscar Rodriguez, according to a report.
Oscar is on loan at CD Leganes until the end of the season and has racked up nine goals and two assists in 29 games so far this season.
It was reported by Calciomercato.com on Thursday night that the Rossoneri are looking for profiles that raises the quality of their trequartista position, with Rodriguez a target along with Dominik Szoboszlai and Aleksey Mirancuk.
When asked about interest from Milan earlier in the week, the agent of the 22-year-old replied: “Why not? Milan is always a great club, with a great tradition.”
He has a bright future and is valued at around €20million, but Real Madrid wish to insert a buy-back clause to protect themselves.
As revealed by IBTimes , Wolves are now interested in signing the playmaker too as manager Nuno Espirito Santo hopes to build a squad capable of competing in European competitions next season.
He wants to make a step forward that allows him to go from the Europa League to the Champions League, and given there is only three points different between them and fourth place at present it seems achievable.
Óscar Rodríguez would likely only be allowed to leave on loan or through a transfer with which Real Madrid would maintain a buy-back clause, since the Spaniard is one of the most talented players who has graduated from the Real academy.
