Moving to Milan, one gutted to move (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

emotional

Here is my best explanation:

'moving' is the definition.

('emotional' is associated in meaning with 'moving')

'milan one gutted to move' is the subsidiary indication.

'gutted' says to hollow out the word (remove centre letters) (to gut something is to remove its insides).

'move' is an anagram indicator.

'one' with its middle taken out is 'oe'.

'milan'+'oe'+'to'='milanoeto'

'milanoeto' is an anagram of 'emotional'.

'to' is the link.

(Other definitions for emotional that I've seen before include "Worked up, upset", "Very affected; upset", "Showing feelings like love or fear", "Arousing strong feelings", "Arousing intense feeling", "Passionate", "Characterized by intense feeling", "Impassioned - excitable", "Subject to intense feelings" and "Arousing strong feeling".)
