Galatasaray keen to land Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu
Galatasaray need to strengthen their midfield.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Galatasaray are keen to land Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu.
The Turkey international was signed by AC Milan in July 2017 from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of 21.3 million euros. The 25-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.
This season, Hakan Calhanoglu has scored one goal in 7 appearances for AC Milan.
The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Turkey.
His record for Turkey is also impressive. Calhanoglu has scored 10 goals in 45 matches for Turkey at senior level.
Fatih Terim is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
Calhanoglu would provide a good variety to Galatasaray’s midfield.
According to Football Italia, “Milan have reportedly rejected an opening bid of €6m from Galatasaray for Turkey midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu. According to Fanatik, Galatasaray are keen on Calhanoglu and have revived their interest from last summer. However, the portal warns their initial offer of €6m was thrown out by Rossoneri directors Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban.”
