Milan have had a very active transfer market so far. Marco Fassone and Masimilliano Mirabelli have signed four players and strengthened each department so far. But it looks like the new men in charge at the club do not intend to stop here.
According to Sky Italia‘s Gianluca Di Marzio, Milan are very confident about closing the deal for the Turkish international and Mirabelli is pushing to close the deal. An agreement with the player has already been reached.
The prominent Italian journalist also added that the Rossoneri‘s first offer to Bayer Leverkusen was €15 million + additional bonuses. The German club’s initial request was €30 million, but it seems that they are softening their position and a deal can be closed for €20 million + bonuses.
Calhanoglu scored 7 goals and assisted another 7 for Leverkusen across all competitions last season. He managed to reach this tally, despite being suspended through sports court since February. The Turk is considered a dead ball specialist and an extremely versatile player, who can play in many positions.
