Milan accelerate pursuit of Zirkzee amid Impending Giroud departure


Milan are intensifying their efforts to secure the signature of Joshua Zirkzee from Bologna, with the Serie A side eager to finalize the deal in the upcoming summer transfer window. Zirkzee, who has attracted interest from clubs across England and Italy, including Bayern Munich with a buyback clause, is now a prime target for Milan as they prepare for the departure of Olivier Giroud.

According to reports from Antonio Vitiello, Giroud has reached a comprehensive agreement with Major League Soccer (MLS) outfit LAFC, marking the end of his tenure with Milan at the conclusion of the current season. With Giroud’s imminent exit, Milan has identified Zirkzee as their preferred successor to fill the void left by the French striker, who played a pivotal role in Milan’s Serie A triumph in 2022.

Milan are actively pursuing Zirkzee’s transfer and are exploring potential financial arrangements with Bologna in the coming days to facilitate the move. Despite competition from English clubs vying for Zirkzee’s signature, Milan is striving to secure a deal swiftly, prioritizing the acquisition of the talented Dutch forward.
