Milan Have Just a Pair of Viable Zirkzee Alternatives

Milan have touched base for other strikers, but Joshua Zirkzee remains their number-one target up front. They wouldn’t need to negotiate with Bologna thanks to a €40M release clause. On the other hand, a few other obstacles are standing in their way, La Gazzetta dello Sport relayed.

His entourage reportedly asks for large commissions. A few other teams are after him as well. Juventus will have the Thiago Motta’s ace up their sleeves, but they already have a top-end center-forward. Arsenal and Manchester United are tracking him from abroad. The Dutchman might prefer continuing in Serie A. He wasn’t called up for the Euro, which might help the Rossoneri’s chances.

In addition to Zirkzee, Milan kicked the tires on Viktor Gyokeres and Benjamin Sesko but are unlikely to pursue them since they’ll be significantly more expensive. Jonathan David has a clear connection with Paulo Fonseca, who coached him for two years with good results. His price tag could be around €20M since his contract is up in 2025.

The Rossoneri have had some talks with Serhou Guirassy too. He’d rather move to the Premier League but will consider them a priority if he fails to get his wish.

Our Take on Milan and Zirkzee

He’d be the perfect guy for them, and the cost of the deal would be reasonable for a player of his caliber. But it looks like that, on top of the other difficulties, they’ll have to convince him to leave Bologna first.
