Chronicle Live are reporting that AC Milan and Turkey midfielder Hakan Calhangolu has been extensively watched by Newcastle United this season as a potential summer reinforcement for the English side. The midfielder has been a regular fixture in Milan’s starting eleven but has been on the brunt end of the fans criticism over the past season for his inconsistency. The midfielder has racked up 24 appearances this season in all competitions but has only contributed 5 goals and 1 assist.

The midfielder has been heavily linked with Arsenal in recent transfer windows and looks likely to exit the club this summer as he enters the final year of his contract. The midfielder represents one of the remnants of the Chinese era at Milan - most of which have seen the door by this point. He represents a huge wage for a low return and will likely not receive a contract renewal. The 26 year old currently earns 2.5 million euros per year. He will likely be sold this summer so Milan can make some money off him otherwise he would likely leave for free at the end of the 2020/21 season. The midfielder has scored 17 goals and provided 24 assists in 116 appearances for the club thus far.
