AC Milan’s search for Hakan Calhanoglu’s replacement is underway and the latest target is a Ligue 1 winner, according to a report.
Calciomercato.com confirms that Milan are looking for a playmaker after the farewell of Calhanoglu, who moved to the Inter side of the Navigli. The latest idea is his compatriot in Turkey international Yusuf Yazici who had a disappointing European Championships with his country, amassing 3 appearances, 117 minutes overall, zero goals, zero assists.
Despite this, he was part of a Lille side that had a fantastic season, finishing above PSG to win the league. Yazici also had a very positive Europa League campaign, with 7 goals in 8 appearances, including a hat-trick against Milan at San Siro in a 3-0 win for Les Dogues.
Relations between Milan and Lille are excellent, as evidenced by the Leao and Maignan affairs, and the player would be happy to make the move to Milan. Maldini and Massara are looking for quality, and Yazici is the latest Rossoneri idea as per the source.
