Reports: Race against time for Milan as offer for Ligue 1 starlet falls short of asking price

By MaaxiAngelo -

Milan are pushing hard for Strasbourg center-half Mohamed Simakan on deadline day. After news that a bid had been submitted and personal terms agreed, more details of the offer have emerged.

Mohamed Simakan has been linked with Milan throughout the transfer window, but things have never really materialised until today, on deadline day.

Earlier this morning, news came out from Italy and France that Milan had agreed on personal terms over a five-year deal with the Rossoneri, as Simakan’s agent confirmed to SempreMilan, and now Calcio Mercato-journalist Daniele Longo reveals what the offer looks like.

According to Longo, Milan presented an offer of €8 million with an additional €4 million in bonuses to Strasbourg. But Longo says that there remains a distance between the two parties, as the French side wants at least €15-16 million to close a deal. Therefore, the Rossoneri needs to raise its offer to acquire the services of the 20-year-old Frenchman.

A short while after Longo’s report, MilanNews reporter Antonio Vitiello reported that Milan’s offer had been rejected by Strasbourg – but that the Rossoneri are expected to submit a new bid in a short time. Vitiello also says that the player is hoping and pushing for a Milan-move.
