“There is no problem for Laxalt to play in Russia” – agent discusses Lokomotiv Moscow links

By Oliver Fisher -

The agent of AC Milan defender Diego Laxalt has opened up regarding the rumours that his client could be set for a move to Lokomotiv Moscow.

Calciomercato.com reported earlier today that a well-known Russian intermediary met the Rossoneri management at Casa Milan yesterday. He was negotiating on behalf of Lokomotiv Moscow, who are keen on signing Laxalt for next season, with a €7m offer presented.

The report added that the bid was rejected by Milan who are looking to raise €10m from his sale, but Calciomercato reporter Daniele Longo has now added that Milan want 10 days to reflect upon the situation and may lower their claims.

Laxalt’s agent Ariel Krasouski spoke to MilanNews about the potential of a deal with the Moscow club.

“Yesterday we talked about it for the first time with Milan, we asked about the conditions of the club on the transfer of Laxalt,” he said.

“If the two clubs find an agreement, there is no problem for Laxalt to play in Russia. If there is positivity for the negotiation? I’m always optimistic.”

There are also reports at the moment that playmaker Aleksey Miranchuk could come the other way as part of the deal as he is a profile that Milan like.
