Benfica Offer Ola John to AC Milan

Portuguese side Benfica have offered up winger Ola John to AC Milan with Adriano Galliani confirming this earlier in the week.

Milan chief Galliani spoke about John to Portuguese newspaper Ojogo “Ola John is of great interest"

"Benfica offered him to us and we’re thinking about it,” commented Galliani. “I cannot say whether it is for a loan or something else right now.”

It is believed that Milan may need to find around 15 million euros to fund a move for the Dutch international but that seems unlikely due to their current financial status.

The 21 year-old made 46 appearances in all competitions last season with a very productive 5 goals and 10 assists for Benfica and the Under-21 Dutch team.
