AC Milan have set their asking price for Diego Laxalt ahead of the January transfer window with Celtic eyeing a permanent deal, a report claims.
Late in the summer transfer window the Scottish champions confirmed the signing of Laxalt on a season-long loan deal, and he has impressed thus far for the Hoops leading to calls by some fans for him to be signed on a permanent basis.
According to Football Insider, the Scottish Premier League side have been informed that Milan value the Uruguay at £4.5m (around €5m) ahead of the January transfer window, suggesting that they are indeed willing to sell.
However, it seems difficult to imagine that Milan have halved their asking price from the summer when they were reported to be asking Russian clubs for €10m to sell the 27-year-old. This is especially the case given Laxalt’s recent performances, with the Rossoneri surely safe in the knowledge they can collect a larger fee.
