Milan Have Bargaining Chip for Large Deal with Bologna

Joshua Zirkzee isn’t the only Bologna player being monitored by Milan, as they are tracking Riccardo Calafiori as well. The Rossoneri could consider a double swoop next summer under the right circumstances, TuttoSport informs.

CEO Giorgio Furlani and co. have an ace up their sleeves in Alexis Saelemaekers. The winger joined the Rossoblù on loan with an option to buy. The Felsinei would have to pay €12M, a sizeable sum for a minnow, to retain him.

Milan might decide to cash in the chip in a different fashion, using it to lower the fee to purchase Zirkzee and Calafiori. The Rossoneri are shortlisting young strikers for the future. Luka Jovic signed just a one-year contract, and Noah Okafor is getting more action on the wing.

The Roma youth product moved to Emilia to compete to play as a fullback but has starred consistently in the middle of the defense following Jhon Lucumi’s injury. Il Diavolo started the season without a pure Theo Hernandez deputy but might rectify that in January.

Our Take on Milan, Zirkzee, and Calafiori

Considering the ambitious names they have been linked to, the Dutchman, who’s an intriguing prospect and would fit a side with menacing wingers very well, would likely be the secondary option, probably with Olivier Giroud no longer in the picture at that point. The defender has been surprisingly sturdy so far, and his versatility would be an asset.
