AC Milan appear to have resigned themselves to defeat in the Mohamed Simakan race and have changed targets, a report claims.
A statement on Strasbourg’s official website yesterday confirmed that Simakan must undergo an arthroscopy which will keep him away from the field for a period of about two months, leading to suggestions Milan are now weighing up their interest.
Sky in Germany then reported today how Leipzig made a strong offer for the player yesterday, and how the player is convinced and will speak to coach Julian Nagelsmann soon.
According to Simone Rovera of TeleFoot, Milan have advanced talks further regarding a loan deal for Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea and have made no progress on the Simakan front.
Milan decided to take time, most likely in light of the injury situation, and Leipzig could take advantage of this to seal a deal for the 20-year-old defender.

Here we go again…can we not just sign one player that we target for 6 months and not lose him to another smaller club??!!. So disappointing
He is out for 2 months mate. We need a defender right now.
