RB Leipzig appear to have a genuine interest in signing AC Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu this winter.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, RB Leipzig are linked with fresh move for Hakan Calhanoglu.
The 24-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Turkey international joined AC Milan from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee in the region of 21.3 million euros in July 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2021.
Calhanoglu has played 65 times for AC Milan since signing from Bayer Leverkusen, scoring 9 goals and creating 21 assists in that time.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 24-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
As a member of Turkey national football team, Calhanoglu won 39 caps and he scored 9 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including RB Leipzig.
RB Leipzig have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Ralf Rangnick is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
According to Calciomercato, “Leipzig are back for Hakan Calhanoglu. The Turkish player had already been courted by the German club last winter, but this time there is a bigger chance of the deal going through. In fact, as reported by MilanNews.it, AC Milan will evaluate any offer that arrives. It is believed that an offer from Leipzig could be worth around €20m.”

AC Milan are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the midfielder, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Leipzig.
Leipzig fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club this winter.
