Clement Lenglet is adamant about wanting to leave Aston Villa in January and AC Milan are considering him as their backup in case they fail to land Lilian Brassier, it has been claimed in Italy.


The 28-year-old centre-back joined Aston Villa on a season-long loan from Barcelona in the summer transfer window.


However, Lenglet failed to get into Unai Emery’s starting line-up and only made his league debut for Aston Villa on 22nd December against Sheffield United.




It has been unclear about whether Lenglet wants to leave, with some suggestions he is looking to, but also claims Emery has spoken to him to change his mind.


However, according to Italian outlet, Lenglet has not changed his decision to leave Aston Villa in the ongoing window.



Italian giants AC Milan are interested in the French defender, but they only consider him as plan B in case they fail to land their priority target Lilian Brassier from Brest.


It is suggested that Barcelona are open to cutting short Lenglet’s stay with the Villa Park outfit but Emery wants to keep him until the end of the season.



Now it remains to be seen what drama lies ahead in the future for Aston Villa loanee Lenglet.
