Reports in France suggest Milan have lost out on Strasbourg defender Mohamed Simakan, as RB Leipzig are very close to a deal.
The Rossoneri have long been pursuing Simakan, a 20-year-old centre-back, but he underwent knee surgery at the weekend, meaning he’ll be out for at least two months.
This raised question marks over whether Milan wanted to invest in someone who will not be able to play for a while.
Now Telefoot in France claim that RB Leipzig are very close to a deal and have overtaken Milan in the race for Simakan.
They also have the upper hand, as they are prepared to leave him on loan in Strasbourg for the rest of the season.
