Do you want to see a top class midfielder join Milan? Well, Calciomercato has revealed that the Rossoneri are interested in the versatile 23 year old attacking midfielder Hakan Çalhanoğlu from Bayer Leverkusen.

The free kick wizard was suspended for the remainder of the season in February after a breach of his contract with a youth club when he was 18. The fee is expected to be between €20-€30 million, surprise surprise.

Gianluca Di Marzio also reported Milan first made contact through an email inquiry. Çalhanoğlu is contracted to Leverkusen until 2019, though it has also been reported from Revier Sport that an agreement shouldn’t be too hard to find and that there is a confidence a deal will be found between the two sides. With James not wanting to come to the San Siro, this move makes perfect sense for AC Milan as he is young, a set piece expert, and has the ability to create and work magic in free space, while also playing in a top 5 league around the world. Please Milan, make this deal come to fruition.
