AC Milan are still on the trail of Strasbourg defender Mohamed Simakan and have an agreement regarding personal terms already, it is claimed.
According to what has been revealed by Calciomercato.com, Milan and Simakan have a ‘general agreement’ with Simakan regarding a four-year contract and now they must strike a deal with Strasbourg.
The Ligue 1 club are asking for no less than €20m which means their asking price has not dropped from the summer, when Milan had offered €13m plus bonuses in the last market session and can go up to €15m this time around.
It will not be a simple negotiation, even if directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara hope to be able to exploit the player’s desire to complete a move to Italy.
Strasbourg are currently third from bottom in the table and Simakan is keen to challenge himself at a higher level. The report adds that the same goes for Ozan Kabak, though clubs like Liverpool and PSG are interested, while Matteo Lovato of Hellas Verona is an option but could cost €15-20m.
