AC Milan are keen to extend the contract of Hakan Calhanoglu, whose current contract is due to expire next summer, according to Calciomercato.
The Turk has been a prominent figure at the San Siro since signing from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2017. He’s netted 27 times in a total of 136 appearances for the Rossoneri.
However, as Calciomercato report, his current deal is due to expire at the end of the season.
Milan could do without losing a player of his calibre on a free transfer, especially considering the unfavourable financial climate in Serie A as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It would be much more straightforward and financially viable for Milan to convince Calhanoglu to commit his future to the club than to sign a replacement.
Calciomercato believe that this is Milan’s intention and it is just a matter of agreeing on the specific terms of the deal before the 26-year-old will sign along the dotted line.
Milan are currently top of Serie A after a perfect start to the campaign. If Calhanoglu was to pen a new contract, it would be another forward stride for the club.
