Milan ask Lille for Zeki Celik

Milan are said to be targeting €20m-rated Turkey international Mehmet Zeki Celik, currently at Lille, for the January transfer window.

According to Tuttosport, the right-back is considered an ideal addition to their squad.

Davide Calabria has received two red cards in the opening seven Serie A rounds, while Mattia Caldara is still a long-term injury absentee.

There is another reason stated why Milan could get a good deal from Lille and that is both clubs are owned by the US hedge fund Elliott Management.

Zeki Celik joined Lille from Istanbulspor in the summer of 2018 for just €2.5m, but his value on the transfer market has sky-rocketed.

Under contract until June 2023 and with two assists in seven Ligue 1 games this season, he would now be going for €20m.

He has 13 senior caps for Turkey, in which he scored two goals.
