Le10Sport: Milan ready new attempt to land Ligue 1 defender but his price has risen

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan still hold an interest in signing Strasbourg defender Mohamed Simakan in the January transfer window, a report claims.

Calciomercato.com reported last month that Milan are still keen on the idea of signing Simakan when the window reopens in January, with the asking price of Strasbourg still around the €20m mark.

The Rossoneri were heavily linked with a move for Simakan towards the end of the summer window and his agent even confirmed to us that his client had agreed terms over a five-year deal.

According to le10sport, Milan offered an amount of €12m during the summer with €3m in bonuses. They believe that ‘the Simakan file is not at all closed’ for Milan who still intend to get their hands on the 20-year-old.

A new attempt is planned for January, but Strasbourg are set to ask for more than the €15m fixed amount they wanted over the summer due to the fact they would lose a valuable talent mid-season. Simakan is under contract with Strasbourg until June 2023.
