Milan have reportedly seen a bid of just under €30m for Gremio and Brazil winger Everton Soares rejected.
According to Globo Esporte, Milan made the offer on Friday via email, but it was returned to sender as Gremio want more money.
On the other hand, Gianluca Di Marzio writes that the Rossoneri never made the proposal and are instead ‘doing their best’ to close a deal.
That may be difficult, however, as Di Marzio warns Gremio are looking for €35m plus bonuses.
There is also the issue of reaching agreements with the two other entities that own parts of the 23-year-old.
