AC Milan are continuing to work on the potential signing of Serhou Guirassy and are negotiating regarding the payment of his release clause, a report claims.
According to what Luca Cilli reported live on Sky (via MilanNews), Milan remain ‘strongly interested’ in Guirassy, who has 17 goals in 14 Bundesliga games and is the second-top scorer in Europe’s ‘top five’ leagues, with only Harry Kane having netted more.
The striker has a release clause worth around €17m in his current contract. Milan will have fresh talks with the German club in the next few days, and they have made it known willing to pay a higher sum than €17m.
However, they would pay more only if they could pay the total amount in instalments which is not possible with the release clause, which normally must be paid in one only payment.
In the event of an agreement with Stuttgart, the player will still have to be convinced, as he has sizeable financial demands and must also agree to leave Stuttgart during the middle of a season where he is thriving.
Developments are expected in the next few days, when Milan have contacted the Bundesliga side regarding the potential transfer fee.
