Asensio is not happy with failing to cement a starting place in the team and it is believed that Milan wants him as a replacement for Franck Kessie who is set to move to Barcelona in the summer.
Apart from Asensio, Milan is on the verge of sealing a move for Liverpool striker Divock Origi who has been part-time at Liverpool.
