I don't hold either but I have been keeping tabs on him since the restart. Looks a good attacking wingback. watched the Monza game last night and thought he looked great! His PB scores have been improving too. I've seen the articles you mention as well saying that Milan want to move him on. Maybe they have had a change of heart after his recent performances?
The thing that put me off getting on him though is that he seems quite injury prone. I imagine that is the reason Milan are considering moving him on rather than his ability. Milan are said to be looking at bringing in more defenders too.
