Calcio Mercato are reporting that AC Milan are interested in Lille attacking midfielder Yusuf Yazici who they have been watching since he scored a hat trick against us in the Europa League earlier last season. The 24 year old was part of the incredible Lille outfit that won the Ligue 1 as he finished the season with 14 goals and 5 assists in all competitions. The attacking midfielder struggled with Turkey at the Euros as he played 3 games totalling 117 minutes but did not register a goal nor an assist as his side crashed out.

Sport Mediaset via MilanNews.it are reporting that Milan are working to replace Hakan Calhanoglu and want to find an attacking midfielder familiar with a 4-2-3-1 system. Milan are looking to leverage the good relationship with Lille from the deal of Leao and Maignan.

Ekrem Konur is reporting that Milan have been told that 25 million euros is what it will take to sign the Turkey international.
