Asensio is not happy with the failure to cement his place in the squad and believes Milan want him as a replacement for Frank Kessie who is set to move to Barcelona in the summer.
Apart from Asensio, Milan are on the verge of ending a move for Liverpool striker Divock Origi, who has been working part-time at Liverpool.
