AC Milan make offer for French defender

French centre back Mohamed Simakan is one of the transfer targets of AC Milan for the defence.

AC Milan are also looking in France to strengthen the squad in the upcoming summer transfer window. One of the targets of most interest for the Rossoneri is Mohamed Simakan.

According to reports from RMC Sport, AC Milan first made an unsuccessfully attempt to buy Simakan in January. However, the Rossoneri have not abandoned the idea of signing the 19-year-old centre back and are offering 15 million euros to convince Strasbourg to sell their most prized asset. Until the Coronavirus outbreak he had made 25 appearances in all competitions.

Strasbourg aim to capitalize on the high interest in Simakan and hope to start a bidding war for his services. Besides AC Milan, Tottenham, Red Bull Leipzig, Eintracht Frankfurt, Borussia Dortmund, Everton and Southampton are the other clubs in the race for Simakan. Badou Sambague, his agent, recently offered an update on the future of the French defender.

In this very complicated period, talking about transfers is not a priority, but it is obvious that opportunities exist for Mohamed. Leaving Strasbourg in the summer is an option. But first there is a season to close, then we will make talks with the club“.

Strasbourg intend to earn as much as possible from the sale of Mohamed Simakan, whose contract expires in June 2023. Considering the high interest it’s clear that the current one will be his last season with Strasbourg. AC Milan on the other hand hope to anticipate the competition of other clubs with an early offer for the talented centre back. However, the competition is fierce.
