From Turkey: Milan and Sevilla both have strong interest in €35m Lille star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Sevilla are both pushing for the signing of Yusuf Yazici from Lille, according to a report from Turkey.

Calciomercato.com first reported Milan’s interest in Yazici as the management look for a playmaker who can fill the void left by his compatriot Calhanoglu, who has decided to join city rivals Inter on a free transfer from July 1.

According to KuzeyEkspres, Milan and Sevilla want the 24-year-old playmaker who won the French Ligue 1 title with Lille last season, and has attracted the attention of many top clubs with his performances.

Yazici amassing 14 goals and 5 assists in 40 games in total for Les Dogues and also scored a hat-trick in their Europa League 3-0 away win against Milan last season. They cite French source Score.fr in claiming that the former Trabzonspor star is viewed as a replacement for Hakan Çalhanoğlu.

An asking price of €35m is mentioned and Lille may have to raise their asking price because 10% of the proceeds of any sale will go to Trabzonspor who they bought him from, as per the terms of the deal agreed.

    Hahahahaha … how these Turkish journalists are liars and how much they invent, Milan will never buy Turkish garbage Yazici, it is garbage from players and he can only play in Serie C

    AC.Milan finally has the opportunity to calm nervous fans and bring something worth investing, my position is that there is no calculation about it and that the money must be spent on these two players because they deserve every euro and the price will rise dramatically in Milan. they are called Renato Sanches and Jonathan Ikoné these are the two diamonds that Milan will wear in the coming years if bought.
