Milan failed to sign him in the past, hopefully they get the more experienced player this time.

Daniele Longo is reporting that AC Milan are following Turkey international Ozan Kabak again this summer after missing out on him a few years back. The report notes that Milan have put a 15 million euro offer plus bonuses on the table to Schalke 04 but the German side want more. The centre back is a top prospect but has been at the centre of controversy as he received a 5 match ban for spitting on a fellow player quite recently.

Fabrizio Romano is reporting that the talks will be very difficult as Schalke have a very high asking price at 25 million euros and want the player to leave only on a permanent deal. Milan are going ahead with the negotiations trying to lower the price.

Gianluca di Marzio is reporting that the agents of Kabak were present at Casa Milan yesterday and Paolo Maldini sees the 20 year old defender as a viable option at CB.

MilanNews.it are reporting that Milan will not spend more than 15-20 million euros for the player but are insistent on making this deal work as time runs out in the transfer window which closes on Monday. There are not many options remaining on the table thus Milan need to ensure they close a deal for a top centre back ASAP.
