The Spaniard has made 24 appearances in LaLiga and has scored two goals so far this season. He mainly operates as a playmaker, and the Rossoneri are ‘very interested’ in view of the summer window.

According to what is being reported by Sport, the player has a release clause of €40million and has already received an offer from Arsenal regarding a summer move.
