AC Milan star Jeremy Menez has no plans on leaving the club at the end of the season, according to his agent.
The Frenchman has had an impressive campaign with the Italian side, scoring 16 goals in all competitions for Filippo Inzaghi's side, and his form has caught the eye of several potential suitors from around Europe, including the Premier League.
The 28-year-old has been at the San Siro since 2014 after he completed a switch from French side Paris Saint-Germain and, during his year in Italy, he has made 33 Serie A appearances, scoring 16 goals.

Menez signed a three-year deal at Milan after ending his three year association with former club PSG, but his future has been in question in recent weeks after catching the eye of some European clubs.
Interest in Menez
Premier League side Liverpool are reportedly very interested in signing the forward, whilst one of his former-clubs, AS Monaco, are also interested in luring him back to France. However, his agent, who is also his brother, has ruled out any possible move over the summer by confirming that his client is happy in Italy and remains content at AC Milan.

Kevin Menez has recently given an interview to Footmercato and confirmed that his brother is only thinking about his future in Italy and his future with Milan, despite the strong interest from the Premier League and Ligue 1.
According to the Daily Star, he said: “At the moment, we’re happy with Jeremy at the club. The club hasn’t told us anything, so there’s no reason to leave.
“Of course, we know that in modern football every player is for sale, but we haven’t been contacted by anyone, and Jeremy feels good at Milan, where he’s had the best season of his career.
“Liverpool and Monaco? These are just rumours, there are rumours around every player.
“A player who has scored 16 goals will be sought-after, but at the moment there’s nothing concrete.”
Brendan Rodgers is an admirer of Menez and was keen on adding him to his attacking line ahead of next season, but it now looks like the Reds boss will have to look elsewhere.
