L’Equipe: Milan in transfer battle with Monaco and Dortmund for France U20 starlet

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are one of a number of clubs in the running to land Strasbourg star Mohamed Simakan, according to a report.

It was reported by MilanNews back in April that Milan have set their sights on the 19-year-old Simakan, with contacts held between Milan and the player’s entourage.

The same outlet then added earlier this month the dialogues were interrupted for a period but there is still interest. Regardless of the outcome of the negotiation, the defender wants to join Milan and there have been new contacts, with Milan keen because he can play both centre-back and right-back, plus he has an affordable asking price.

According to L’Equipe (via Eurosport), AS Monaco boss Niko Kovac is also targeting the French U20 international, but Borussia Dortmund and AC Milan are credited with interest too.

It is no secret that the Rossoneri are in the market for defensive reinforcements this summer as they have been suggestions that Mateo Musacchio and Leo Duarte could leave, while Matteo Gabbia could be loaned out.
