AC Milan have shown an interest in signing Assan Ouedraogo from Schalke 04 with the 2006-born midfielder showing serious promise.
As has been reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, interest in the midfielder had already been shown by Milan in the summer and now they want to bring him to the club in the January transfer window.
The 17-year-old has currently got a release clause of €20m which means he would not be a simple purchase but a meeting is expected in the coming days between the two clubs.
The main talking point as far as Milan are concerned is the release clause, as the Rossoneri want to see if the German club would be willing to lower it and ensure they still get a handsome fee for such a young player.
So far this season in the Bundesliga 2, Ouedraogo has played nine times and managed to contribute one goal, with Schalke struggling near the bottom.
