From Austria: Milan make concrete offer for Hoffenheim midfielder as Maldini pushes to agree terms

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have made an official offer to sign Hoffenheim midfielder Florian Grillitsch, according to a report from Austria.

German outlet Kicker reported earlier in the month that a new target is in the sights of the management as Grillitsch has entered their radar and is ‘very popular’ with Paolo Maldini and co., with the hunt for a central midfielder firmly underway.

According to the latest from Austria source Kurier, Milan have made a concrete offer to sign Grillitsch from Hoffenheim, with technical director Paolo Maldini wanting to agree terms as soon as possible with Grillitsch and his agent Thomas Böhm as soon as possible.

Hoffenheim want €10-12m for the Austria international despite the fact that the player’s contract expires next summer and there is no sign that a renewal is imminent. It comes amid rumours of progress in deals for Yacine Adli and Tiemoue Bakayoko, who can both play a deeper midfield role too.
