AC Milan have officially made their second offer to AZ Alkmaar for midfielder Tijjani Reijnders and remain confident, according to reliable sources.
The majority of outlets have claimed that Milan made an initial offer for Reijnders which was turned down by AZ Alkmaar as they hold out for a bigger fee, but there have been suggestions that a new bid is being prepared.
Now, Fabrizio Romano has provided an update. He claims that Milan have now submitted a new formal offer to the Dutch club which is €20m as the fixed amount plus add-ons.
AZ Alkmaar asked for €25m after an initial request of €20m fixed fee as per Romano. The player is pushing for the move to get done and Milan are ‘confident’.
According to Matteo Moretto of Relevo, Milan are indeed advancing for Reijnders. The Rossoneri have just offered €20m plus €5m in bonuses while AZ continue to ask for a bit more. The clubs are ‘close’ and talks are ongoing.
