New Details Come to Light About Terms to Sign Zirkzee

The teams that want Joshua Zirkzee will have to wait to concretely start tussling to acquire him. His €40M release clause is valid from July 1st to August 15th. Therefore, they have about a month to convince him to leave Bologna, which he seems in no rush to do, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

Milan are ready to compete with the Premier League powerhouses for the Rossoblù star. His price tag is lower than other of their rumored targets, especially Viktor Gyokeres and Benjamin Sesko. But they’ll have to come to terms with his entourage and the player first.

The first part might be challenging. According to Corriere dello Sport (via Tag24), his agent Kia Joorabchian demands lofty commissions, €10/15M. He’d prefer Zirkzee to transfer to the Premier League, where there’s more money to be made. Arsenal are very interested as well.

The Dutchman hinted he’d like to continue with Bologna in a recent interview. On the other hand, he earns just €900k annually, and his salary could easily triple, if not more, if he transferred to a big team. That’s part of what makes a particularly enticing target.

Our Take on Zirkzee

It’s a little odd that the details are trickling in little by little and not all right away. The tidbits probably won’t stop here, and one has to wonder who’s pulling the strings. There’s a chance the deal becomes too expensive for Milan’s liking. They are doing a lot of homework on more affordable center-forwards as of late.
