Milan Enter Key Stages of Pursuit of Schalke 04 Starlet

Milan have been pursuing Assan Ouedraogo for a couple of windows, but they needed to wait for his manageable release clause to come into effect to sign him. It’ll happen in May, but the competition to purchase the teenager has heated up, Calciomercato informs.

Napoli are keen on the Schalke 04 prodigy as well. Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt have also shown interest in the budding midfielder.

Milan and the other suitors are ready to activate the €12M release clause that will soon be present in the contract of Ouedraogo. While the price tag won’t need to be bargained, the race will come down to personal terms and the technical project presented to the youngster.

The Rossoneri have been after him for two years and have kept in touch with his agents. They acquired Malick Thiaw from the same team in the past. The talent suffered a serious ankle injury this season, which made him miss the U-17 World Cup. He and the team didn’t entertain offers last summer because the international competition was supposed to be his showcase. He has scored and assisted once in 11 appearances in the 2. Bundesliga.

Our Take on Milan and Ouedraogo

They have been tending to this negotiation for a while, and it wouldn’t be a great look if they got pipped at the post. The threat of somebody coming in over the top with disproportionate wages and an immediate prominent role is always present in these cases.
