Bayer Leverkusen made an attempt to sign left winger Jens Petter Hauge on loan from AC Milan.

AC Milan are about to close the January transfer window with three important signings and a couple of departures. Players who were deemed surplus to requirements like Andrea Conti and Musacchio left but another one could have followed.

According to recent reports, AC Milan has received several offers for Jens Petter Hauge. The left winger is a tempting player to many European teams, but Maldini and Massara have decided that the Norwegian must stay and needs to grow at Milan.

Journalist Nicolo Schira reports that Bayer Leverkusen made a serious attempt to sign Hauge from AC Milan. The German club wanted the 21-year-old on loan until the end of the season and would have loved to have an option to make the transfer permanent. Nevertheless, the Rossoneri never really considered letting their gem leave.

Despite not being a regular starter he will stay at San Siro. Throughout the season Hauge has been very useful with his contribution on the left and on the right wing.

AC Milan spent 5 million euros to buy the Norwegian talent from Bodo Glimt. He has made 18 appearances with the Rossoneri scoring 4 goals and providing one assist so far.
