Milan Channel has reported Milan's summer transfer window is closed. No more additions.

Witsel Talks Back On

Milan has upped its offer for Zenit Saint Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel. Milan are looking to take Witsel on loan with an option to buy. Zenit wants to make it an obligation to buy. Milan has upped its transfer offer, which was last reported to be 22 million euros.

Tottenham has made an official bid of about 18 million euros with 2 million in bonuses. Juventus is also interested.

According to Witsel's intermediary, Zenit will not sell Witsel now until January. All three clubs will probably continue pursuing him in the next few hours, however.

Zenit is reportedly in talks with Jurgen Klopp to take over as manager from Andre Villas-Boas, which would affect the transfer strategy with Witsel.

According to Sky, Milan may make another attempt in the last few ours of the transfer window, but a deal for Witsel is unlikely.

The Witsel news changes by the minute. Zenit is now open to a loan with an option to buy.

A PSG Arrival?

No, it is not Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Thiago Silva. Milan is apparently interested in Aiden Raibot. The 20-year-old midfielder could be an option as the Witsel deal looks more unlikely.

No Soriano for Milan

Reports suggest Milan is no longer interested in Roberto Soriano, and now the player could be on his way to Napoli. Aurelio De Laurentiis said Sunday Napoli had made a large bid, but Soriano only wanted Milan. With Milan turning the other shoulder, his plans have likely changed.

Mediaset reports the deal is now done and Soriano will join Napoli.

Napoli paid 13.5 million euros plus Juan Camilo Zuniga for Soriano.

Matri to Lazio?

Milan is in discussions with Lazio about a loan deal for Alessandro Matri. The striker continues to bounce around Italy while remaining attached to Milan. Matri is on his way to Casa Milan to prepare for the move.

The Matri move is official.

...with Lulic coming the other way?

Sky is reporting Senad Lulic will come the other way as part of Matri's loan to Lazio.

While the Matri deal is official, there is no word on Lulic.

Zaccardo to Carpi

Christian Zaccardo is no longer a Milan player. The veteran defender is set to join Carpi for 2 million euros. Milan will reportedly receive another 1 million euros if Carpi avoids relegation this season.

Mastour's Long Spain Adventure

Hachim Mastour is on his way to Malaga on what is reportedly a two-year loan deal. Milan will have an option to buy back the Moroccan wunderkind for 6 million euros.
