Little midfielder Renato Sanches has admitted that he feels “ready” to receive offers from Arsenal and AC Milan in the January transfer window.
The Portuguese national team player was strongly linked to a move from Lille this summer, only for a nasty knee injury that caused his chances of a transfer to crash.
But Lille’s miserable form in Ligue 1 this season – the reigning Ligue 1 champions are 12th after 14 matches and sit 20 points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain – has seen these rumors recur, with both Arsenal and Milan tipped to reach out.
Sanches was asked about the speculation during a recent meeting with L’Equipe, where he did not hesitate to discuss his openness to move clubs in the near future.
“Maybe Milan and Arsenal are interested but I do not know,” he said. “I talked to my agent, I know which clubs are calling and which are calling now, but I can not say now.

“But I know I’m ready. If an offer comes in, I’ll see what’s best for me.”
When asked about his feelings for AC Milan specifically, he replied: “It’s a fantastic club. A historic club with real class. I like them.”
Sanchez also took the opportunity to express his confusion over Lille’s use of him in recent years. Last season, Christophe Galtier often used him as a winger, while new manager Jocelyn Gourvennec has sometimes done the same.
“Galtier often needed a more compact team and that’s why he put me on the edge,” he said. “Bouba [Boubakary Soumare, now with Leicester], Benjamin [Andre] and Xeka are players with real quality in midfield.
“When I was on one side, he felt we defended better. We attacked well too, even though I do not have the same profile as [Jonathan] Icon or Timo [Timothy Weah]. But hey, my position is in the middle, number 8. “
