Feyenoord midfielder Mats Wieffer has admitted that he is flattered by the reports linking him with a potential move to AC Milan.
It was late last month when TMW’s Marco Conterio reported that Milan had opened talks with both Feyenoord and Weiffer’s entourage to understand how much it would cost to sign the 23-year-old.
Wieffer was one of the best players for Feyenoord in their title-winning run in 2022-23, starting every game in the second half of the season except one due to suspension and amassing six goal contributions from a deep-lying midfield role.
The Dutchman spoke to Radio Rijnmond ahead of the new season and he was asked specifically about the rumours that suggest he is a target for Milan, with his response relayed by MilanNews.
“It’s obviously very nice to hear that these clubs are interested. As far as I’m concerned, I want to stay at Feyenoord for another year. It’s the best thing for me,” he said.
“We’ll see what happens. I feel really good at Feyenoord. Sure, it’s a good feeling when there’s this news, at least you know you’re doing well and you’re being watched. You can say it’s not nice, but in the end it’s like that. It tickles your ego a bit.”
Wieffer joined Feyenoord from Rotterdam rivals Excelsior last year and he made his debut for the Dutch national team earlier this year, having played three times for them.
