AC Milan could sign a midfielder in January to strengthen the team and Assan Ouedraogo has ended up at the top of their wish list. According to a report, the Rossoneri will be looking to get a discount on the €11m clause.
Ouedraogo is just 17 years old but has done very well for Schalke 04 in the German second tier. He has made eleven appearances so far and it probably would have been more, but a hamstring injury has kept him out for the last two games.
Milan have been keeping an eye on him for quite some time and Geoffrey Moncada could make an attempt in January. Yesterday, it was even reported that the Rossoneri are pushing for his arrival, in constant talks with the entourage.
According to Corriere dello Sport, as cited by MilanNews, Milan are indeed in talks with the central midfielder’s entourage. However, while the rapport is very positive with the player, the Rossoneri want to secure a discount on the €11m release clause.
Milan are not the only ones interested and getting a discount on an already low clause could, ironically, prove costly. On the other hand, Ouedraogo still has a lot to prove and with the backing of the entourage, they might be able to get the price down.
