TMW: Milan readying €10m bid for 20-year-old PAOK starlet

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interesting in signing young playmaker Giannis Konstantelias and are readying a sizeable bid, according to a report.

According to a what is being reported by TMW, Milan are very interested in signing 20-year-old Greek attacking midfielder Giannis Konstantelias who is currently playing for PAOK Thessaloniki.

Paolo Maldini in particular has been in touch with PAOK over a potential deal ahead of the summer and he has a bid worth €10, ready to offer to the Greek team. The director of the Rossoneri technical area has been in contact with his counterpart Josè Boto.

There is competition to sign the youngster though which mainly comes from Sevilla and Red Bull Salzburg, who have offered €10m and €7m respectively for the attacking midfielder, who has one goal and five assists in 21 games this season.

However, neither of those amounts (and Milan’s bid) are enough at the moment as PAOK’s demand is around €15-20m as they know they have a talent on their hands who is very much in demand.

  1. If we have 15-20 M lying around then that gets us Brahim. Is this Greek kid a better bet? Honestly asking, it’s the first i’m hearing about him.

    1. For some reason Madrid has never been keen to let Brahim go completely, so it will take 20-25m and then they may insert a buy back. Plus, Brahim himself has always kept an eye towards going back to Madrid someday. I don’t think the Greek is the Brahim replacement. I think CDK is expected to finally emerge at some point and take the role. Instead the Greek would then be the guy behind him. That said, assuming our summer transfer budget is 40-50m again I would spend ~30m on a good CDM and then reallocate the rest to the wage budget so we can resign Leao, and sign Thuram on a free. Brahim goes back to Madrid and CDK can start at CAM. Let him play for at least 10 straight games and see what he is really made of. If he still sucks we can give Adli a shot. If we stay in the 3-4-1-2/3-4-2-1 we won’t need an RW. The emergence of Thiaw solves the CB problem we seemed to have at the beginning of the season. Then the only concern is a proper backup for Theo.

  2. As a Greek he is by far the best attacking player we have produced after 2000s and in my mind he worths around the amount PAOK is asking
    There is no much deference between him and Brahim but remember that Real has a buy back option for him so he will never be 100% Milan player
    Long story short he can be a Kvara opportunity definitely not another CDK the dude also is very good at pressing the defence
    Watch the game Panathinaikos – PAOK 0-3
    He is number 65
