Kristoffer Ajer’s desire to leave Celtic this summer was initially made public by his former agent, Tore Pedersen in March.

AC Milan have been credited with an interest in the defender, and that didn’t change even after the 22-year-old changed agents in June.

Earlier today, Calciomercato reported the Serie A side maintain a ‘strong interest’ in signing the Norway international.

Another report from the same website now explains the ‘signals coming from Glasgow are very interesting’ for the Rossoneri.

It’s claimed that Neil Lennon’s side are ‘willing’ to allow Ajer to join the Italian side on an ‘onerous loan with right to buy’ for €15m, which sounds a little too-good-to-true.

Milan, who are in the market for a new central defender, consider the price ‘appropriate’, especially given the difficulties they have faced in their efforts to sign Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenković.

Calciomercato state that next week, probably as early as Monday, a meeting is set to take place between Ajer’s representatives and the leaders of the Serie A side. The objective is to sort out the figures of the deal, and how the operation will be undertaken.

The Celtic player is waiting, and hoping for the deal to go through, because it’s stated signing for Milan has always been the first choice for Ajer.
