Villarreal winger Samu Castillejo is due to arrive in Italy on Tuesday evening as his move to AC Milan looks set to be completed.
The 23-year-old winger is concerned with a lack of first-team action during pre-season and wants to move to Milan to ensure game-time, as reported by AS.
Gianluca Di Marzio’s website claims that the deal will be a loan move worth around €3-4m, with the obligation to make the move a permanent one next summer of around €14-15m.
The move would provide a good profit for the Yellow Submarine, having signed the former Spanish youth international for €8m from Malaga in 2015.
Castillejo was involved in 11 goals from the flanks last season and wants to leave, despite registering 30 appearances in Villarreal’s rise to fifth in LaLiga.
The Estadio de La Cerámica outfit have looked to shed some fringe players, with a view to reinvesting in other areas, but Castillejo was not considered among those, with fellow wingers Denis Cheryshev and Nicola Sansone more likely to leave.
The Spaniard is now expected to arrive in Milan on Tuesday evening to seal a move to the San Siro with a medical booked in for Wednesday morning.
