Equipe: AC Milan make official bid for Simakan

AC Milan have made an official offer for Strasbourg centre back Mohamed Simakan reports L’Equipe.

AC Milan have decided to concentrate on Mohamed Simakan as their top target for the defence. The 20-year-old French centre back has been on the Rossoneri’s radar since the summer and Maldini will try everything to bring him at San Siro in January.

Simakan was very close to joining AC Milan in the summer but RC Strasbourg rejected three offers from AC Milan in the last day of the mercato. Now, the Rossoneri will make a revamped attempt for the talented defender.

L’Equipe reports that AC Milan have made an official bid for Simakan offering 15 million euro to RC Strasbourg. That is the ideal amount that Milan want to spend to sign the 20-year-old defender.

However, it looks unlikely that Strasbourg accept after refusing 17 million in the summer from Milan. The Rossoneri are hopping that the general economic situation in the world of football could convince the French club to lower their asking price.

If AC Milan again fail to land Simakan they will reportedly turn their attention to Matteo Lovato of Hellas Verona and Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic.
