Despite RB Leipzig insisting Emil Forsberg would not be sold this summer, the winger has refused to close the door on a possible move away from the Bundesliga.

Liverpool, Arsenal and Serie A side AC Milan have been linked with a move for the 25-year-old, whose stock rose after consistently impressive displays under Ralph Hasenhüttl’s management last season.

Ralf Rangnick insisted that none of the club’s key players would be sold this summer, especially with the inclusion of UEFA Champions League football next season, they instead want to focus on strengthening their squad.

However, according to German newspaper Bild, this might not be the case after all. Forsberg said that he’s leaving things in the hands of his agent, who works for the HCM Sport Agency.

I had a fantastic time in Leipzig, my agent does everything else. I do not know where I’ll play next season,” Forsberg admitted.

When questioned about AC Milan, he hinted the possibility of being interested by the type of project they’re undergoing to get themselves back to the top of European football.

Milan is a fantastic club. It is now an interesting project, with major investments being made to get back to the top again.

The fact that he didn’t refuse suggestions that he’d be leaving this summer and instead eluded it could be inevitable means it’s unlikely that he’ll be at Leipzig for much longer, despite enjoying his time there.

Forsberg signed improved contract terms only back in February and is likely to prompt bids higher than the £20m previously mentioned, if Leipzig are to consider letting him leave.

If Arsenal’s interest in Forsberg is concrete, this will come as welcome news in their pursuit of his signature although his other suitors could spark a bidding war.
