Milan optimistic about Zirkzee transfer


Milan are optimistic about their chances of signing Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee this summer, despite interest from Arsenal. Calciomercato report how Rossoneri representatives Geoffrey Moncada, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Antonio D’Ottavio have been working tirelessly for weeks to secure the Dutch striker from Bologna, the only target not requiring the approval of the new coach.

Milan are optimistic about the Zirkzee deal, despite the numerous variables that may not always be within their control. The groundwork laid thus far has positioned the Rossoneri favorably in the race for the Dutchman, with the management’s plan including a willingness to trigger the €40 million release clause as early as June. However, Zirkzee must first give the green light to the operation.

At present, Milan’s most dangerous rival for Zirkzee is Premier League side Arsenal. The Gunners’ interest is undeniably concrete, and they enjoy excellent relations with Kia Joorabchian, the Iranian-born British businessman representing Joshua. Moncada and Ibrahimovic have secured the player’s preference, but now they must negotiate with his entourage to turn optimism into satisfaction for landing a major coup.
