AC Milan are in concrete talks with KAA Gent for striker Roman Yaremchuk but have already sent a ‘final offer’ of sorts, a report claims.
Alessandro Jacobone was the first to report of confirmed contacts between technical director Paolo Maldini and Gent for Yaremchuk. The player is “endorsed” by Shevchenko and could arrive on loan with option to buy at €15-16m, while Sportwereld and Nieuwsblad in Belgium (via FootballItalia) both backed up those claims.
As reported by Daniel Longo for Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri have initiated contacts with Gent for Yaremchuk, who is putting on a good display at the European Championships with Ukraine. The demand from the Belgian club is very high as they want €25m to let the 25-year-old leave.
Milan currently will not go beyond a paid loan of between €3m and €4m with an option to buy set at around €15m, so an operation coming in at €18-19m. There is still a substantial difference therefore, but he is an option to be taken into great consideration.
