There are four clubs in LaLiga who are interested in signing winger Samu Castillejo from AC Milan, according to a source in Spain.

A number of sources have reported that Milan’s objective for the summer window is to bring players in who offer more guarantees from a goalscoring point of view, starting with Olivier Giroud but not ending there. The idea is to identify a right winger capable of beating a man with the dribble, creating numerical superiority and above all impacting concretely with goals and assists.

Alexis Saelemaekers is Stefano Pioli’s ‘trusted soldier’ because of his dynamism and balance, but a more obvious attacking threat is wanted for the right side given how left-sided the Rossoneri’s attack was at times last season.

For that to happen it seems Samu Castillejo has to be sold, and he appears to have a market. El Chiringuito (via MilanGoleador) reports that Getafe, Celta, Valencia and Espanyol are all interested in the 26-year-old. They add that Milan would sell for an offer of €8m.
