AC risk losing attacking midfielder for free at the end of the season as attempts to agree a new contract have so far proved unsuccessful.

The international has enjoyed a hugely successful season for the Rossoneri, helping Stefano Pioli’s side sit top of and reach the knockout stages of the Europa League.

However, with his existing contract set to expire in the summer, are in a race against time to tie Calhanoglu down to a new deal and prevent him departing for no fee.

According to Corriere dello Sport, have sought to double Calhanoglu’s current annual salary of €2.5 million, but the former midfielder is holding out for €6m per season.

With the currently unwilling to match his demands, negotiations have reached a standstill, although both parties believe that an agreement is not completely out of the question.

Calhanoglu joined from club Bayer Leverkusen in 2017 and has scored 29 goals in 153 appearances.
