Kicker report that Italian side AC Milan are interested in signing Hoffenheim midfielder Florian Grillitsch with just 12 months remaining on his current deal.
Fellow Serie A side Napoli had also shown an interest in signing the Austria international but they’re seemingly unable to meet Hoffenheim’s valuation whilst Milan are capable of paying a transfer fee in the low double-digit million.
“At the moment, I am assuming that he is part of the team. I have no signals in the other direction,” said TSG head coach Sebastian Hoeneß. Grillitsch could of course remain at Hoffenheim but they lose the risk of losing him on a free transfer next summer if he doesn’t sign a contract extension.
The 26-year-old has played 133 games in all competitions for Hoffenheim after joining the club on a free transfer from Werder Bremen in 2017.
