Reports: Milan launch official €15m bid for defensive target after agreeing personal terms

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have agreed personal terms with Mohamed Simakan, a report claims, while another source adds that an official offer has been launched.

Widespread reports have claimed over the past few days that Milan are negotiating with the Ligue 1 side over a fee for Simakan after journalist Ekrem Konur confirmed to us that an agreement has been reached over a five-year deal with the player.

L’Equipe confirms the rumours and reports that the Rossoneri have made a €15million offer, but back in the summer they saw an offer snubbed in the region of €17m, so whether the new bid of a lesser amount will be accepted remains to be seen.

The general economic situation of the world of football could help Milan and in the next few hours concrete contacts will resume, as Milan intend to close the deal as soon as possible given the current injury problems.

According to il Corriere della Sport (via MilanNews), Milan have agreed terms with the player on the basis of a salary just under €2m per season.

The track leading to Schalke’s Ozan Kabak is not to be discarded, but a big discount would be needed compared to the €25m requested in the summer.
