The Turkish star enjoyed his best season in Serie A in 2020/21 with nine assists from 33 league games with Stefano Pioli’s side.
However, he has opted against agreeing to a contract extension at the San Siro with the growing potential of a free transfer exit for the 27-year-old ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
Calhanoglu has stated he will wait until after Euro 2020 to make a firm decision on what to do but Los Rojiblancos could now battle against Premier League clubs for him as per reports from Marca.
The Argentinian winger is an emerging target for Simeone’s defending Spanish champions but the two clubs are still some distance apart in their valuations of him.
