Reports: Torino hold talks with Milan over Calhanoglu; Laxalt reflecting on move

By Oliver Fisher -

Torino will only be able to seal a deal for Hakan Calhanoglu if AC Milan accept a certain formula for the deal, a report claims.

Calhanoglu’s future with the Rossoneri has been uncertain all summer as numerous outlets have frequently linked him with an exit.

La Gazzetta dello Sport recently claimed that the 25-year-old was considering his options amid interest from a number of clubs in Germany.

Wednesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews.it), stated that Serie A side Torino were interested in acquiring the Turkey international.

He is of course not the only Milan player that il Toro have been linked with, as Gianluca Di Marzio (as cited by MilanNews.it) stated on Tuesday that they are closing in on the signing of Diego Laxalt.

As per Calciomercato.com, Milan have held talks with their Turin-based counterparts over both Laxalt and Calhanoglu in the last few hours.

Torino are interested in the idea of signing for former Leverkusen man due to his ability to play a number of midfield roles, the report claims.

However, the outlet concludes by stating that a deal can only take place if Milan accepts the formula of a loan with the option to buy.

Meanwhile, La Gazzetta dello Sport‘s Nicolo Schira offered an update on the Laxalt situation on his Twitter account.

Schira states that Milan have offered an incentive to try and get the deal over the line (paying some of his salary) while agreeing on a loan with option to buy.

Laxalt has asked for time to reflect, and a decision is expected in the next 48 hours.
