Alexis Saelemaekers could be on his way out of AC Milan this summer, with the Rossoneri already setting an asking price with him in great demand.


While the Belgian winger has recently renewed his contract with Milan until 2026, he could be set to leave this summer with him struggling to nail down a starting spot in the team.


According to SempreMilan.it, Milan want to sign a new right winger this summer in order to improve the quality of their attack, especially with the futures of Junior Messias and Samu Castillejo still in serious doubt.


Saelemaekers is being heavily linked with a possible move abroad, with Milan reportedly wanting at least €16-20 million for him given that he still has four years on his current deal and that he has been a very good squad player over the last two seasons under Stefano Pioli.


This has also been confirmed by Matteo Moretto, who claims that there's a foreign team that is ready to submit an offer to Milan for the Belgian winger.


If Saelemaekers does end up leaving the club, then the Rossoneri will have to surely find a replacement, and if all three leave, two wingers are expected to come in.


One of the wingers to come in is set to be a definitive starter, with names such as Marco Asensio, Riyad Mahrez and Domenico Berardi being touted as possible targets, while Gerard Deulofeu could come in as an alternative to either of them.


Saelemaekers has featured in 43 games in all competitions for Milan this season, with 26 of them coming from starts, yet he has had mixed form, with just two goals and three assists in all 43 games, extremely underwhelming given the Rossoneri's outrageous league form.
