Report: AC Milan agree terms with defender

AC Milan have agreed personal terms with Mohamed Simakan and are looking to reach a deal with RC Strasbourg, a report claims.

Mohamed Simakan seems to be AC Milan’s top transfer target to reinforce the defenve. The Rossoneri management are keeping a lot of possibilities open but the 20-year-old Frenchman is the profile that interests most.

The Red and Blacks tried to purchase Simakan until the very last hours of the summer transfer window but without success. However, Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara are trying again and hope to have better luck in January.

According to reports, Maldini greatly appreciates Simakan and is speeding up contacts with the player and his agent. A new offer is expected to reach RC Strasbourg in the coming days.

AC Milan hope to close a quick deal for the talented French central defender. However, a number of clubs are also keeping tabs on his situation with Red Bull Leipzig and Wolverhampton quite interested. 

According to reports in Italy it looks like AC Milan have already agreed personal terms with Mohamed Simakan but there is a lot of work to be done with RC Strasbourg. The January transfer window is getting closer and closer now. This season the 20-year-old centre back has made 16 appearances in Ligue 1.
