The agent of Bayer Leverkusen's Hakan Calhanoglu has claimed that his client has agreed personal terms for a potential move to Serie A big spenders AC Milan.

The Turkish international has recently completed his four-month ban from all footballing activity after it was discovered by FIFA that the midfielder breached his contract, when signing for Trabzonspor as a teenager because he never actually joined the club.

Now, his agent, Bektas Demirtas, has told Kicker that the 23-year-old wants the move to Milan and now it is up to the two clubs to agree on a fee.

He said: "We held good talks with AC Milan. It's now important that the clubs reach an agreement. Once they achieve an agreement, we can enter final talks with AC Milan."

Kicker report that the fee should be between €20m to €30m, a price which in the modern day market seems like a bargain given Calhanoglu's undoubted quality.


The attack-minded midfielder arrived at Leverkusen from Hamburg for around €14.5m and has gone on to forge a reputation as one of the Bundesliga's finest creative forces.

He is a well-renowned set-piece specialist with a great range of passing, the perfect answer to Milan's woes in the creativity department.

The Rossoneri have already bolstered their squad with some stellar new signings this summer as they bid to regain their rightful position in the Italian top-flight.

Franck Kessie, André Silva, Mateo Musacchio and Ricardo Rodriguez have all been brought in and it seems inevitable that Vincenzo Montella will add a few more faces before deadline day.
