The 20-year-old wonderkid is a very highly-rated prospect, who has been delivering some fantastic displays for Strasbourg in Ligue 1 this term.

As WhoScored shows, the Frenchman has started all 17 of Strasbourg’s Ligue 1 games, scoring one goal and assisting one more.

RMC Sport have previously linked the centre-back to Tottenham and Everton.

Elsewhere, it was The Sun who said West Ham were interested.

AC Milan have enough of a glittering history to convince most players to move to the San Siro.

However, the fact they are currently among the most successful sides in Europe is also a major pull-factor.

If Tottenham, Everton and West Ham are serious about landing Simakan, then they’ll need to do well to beat AC Milan to his services.
