AC Milan’s interest in signing Boulaye Dia has been confirmed, but if they want to land him for his release clause price they will have to move quickly.
As reported by Sky, on Thursday evening the €25m release clause in Dia’s deal expires after he was bought by Salernitana for €12m at the end of last season following a successful initial loan spell from Villarreal.
The 26-year-old netted 16 goals and added 6 assists last season which means he has drawn the eyes of several clubs. In Italy there is interest in him above all from Fiorentina and Milan, as per the report.
From the Premier League there are rumours that Everton and Nottingham Forest are keen on signing Dia, but if they want to sign him for €25m they must move quickly and trigger the clause by tomorrow.
If no team comes forward to pay the clause before it expires, they will have to negotiate a fee directly with Salernitana who could of course ask for more.
