Report: Milan’s interest in RB Leipzig playmaker rekindled after learning asking price

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could rekindle their interest in RB Leipzig playmaker Emile Forsberg after learning of his availability, a report claims.

The Rossoneri were strongly linked with a move for the Sweden international back in June 2017, when Sky Italia and Gianluca Di Marzio both reported that Milan are keen on tying up a deal worth somewhere in the region of around €30-35m, however nothing got done and he has stayed at Leipzig since.

According to the latest from SportBild – as cited by Calciomercato.it – Forsberg is no longer considered central to the plans of head coach Julian Nagelsmann and has opened up to the possibility of trying an experience in a new league, like Serie A.

The report adds that the price tag for the 28-year-old – who has nine goals and three assists in 24 appearances across all competitions this season – has been set at €20m.

These are developments which have ‘rekindled Milan’s interest’, the report adds, and the club’s hierarchy could take advantage of his lower price tag to add some experience and creativity to the group.
