Milan’s growing optimism in securing Zirkzee transfer


Milan are growing increasingly confident of completing a deal to sign Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee. The Dutch forward, who delivered impressive performances for the Rossoblu last season, has caught the attention of several clubs.

Sky Sport Italia journalist Manuele Baiocchini reports that new negotiations have taken place today, increasing Milan’s hope of finalizing the deal.

In recent days, the key sticking point has been the transfer fee commission, which Milan consider excessively high, However, the Rossoneri are expected to negotiate this down successfully.

The Lombardy side are keen to expedite the process, both due to their urgent need for a striker and to pre-empt potential interest from Premier League clubs or Juventus.

During last season, Zirkzee played a pivotal role under Thiago Motta’s management, scoring 12 goals and providing 7 assists in 37 appearances across Serie A and the Coppa Italia.
