Joshua Zirkzee is one of the main names in the Milan crosshairs ahead of the summer. He lived up to his reputation in the recent clash at San Siro. While he would be pricey, he might be easier to sign than other targets, TuttoSport informs.
The Rossoneri have a pair of aces up their sleeves to help their pursuit. They sent Alexis Saelemaekers on loan to the Felsinei with a €10M option to buy. He has been a regular. The figure to redeem him would be detracted from the fee for the striker.
Milan have to be wary in particular of Bayern Munich for Zirkzee. However, there are no signals that the Bundesliga powerhouse intends to bring him back at this stage. They could activate a €40M release clause valid only for them. Plus, they have the right to match any offer.
On top of the sale of Saelemaekers, the Rossoneri will cash in a significant sum from Charles De Ketelaere. Considering his stellar performance, Atalanta will sign him permanently for €22M, adding to their economic ammunition.
Our Take on Milan and Zirkzee
Those factors help but money isn’t really a problem for them, but rather the competition in a potential bidding war. He’d be perfect for them, not only for his flair, but also because he’d be thrive next to two classy wingers, such as Rafael Leao and Christian Pulisic, who like to cut and finish.
