CM: Milan want Zirkzee regardless of which coach replaces Pioli

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan are going to pursue the signing of Bologna midfielder Joshua Zirkzee regardless of which coach they hire to replace Stefano Pioli in the coming weeks.

As has been reported by, Zirkzee is one of the very few constants as far as Milan are concerned. He suits the project and the team’s needs enough to not factor into the coaching decision.

Milan are being linked with a whole host of coaches that could potentially replace Stefano Pioli at the end of the season, with each having their own style and tendencies.

Despite all the names that are being linked, such as Sergio Conceicao, Mark van Bommel, Paulo Fonseca and many more, Zirkzee is a player that the club wants.

With Olivier Giroud leaving Milan for LAFC this summer, a striker is the most important purchase that Milan will make and Zirkzee would be a Serie A-proven option who can still develop and get even better.

He has got 12 goals and seven assists so far this season and whilst Milan are being linked with lots of different players, he is the only one that is not subject to the arrival of a new coach, meaning Milan can push ahead with their plans to sign him.

  1. Pavlidis or the Ukrainian guy from girona. Nostalgic for sheva hehe.

    Very doubtful Milan way cash out on zirky or šeš or anyone above 40M pricetag

      1. Sure I’d take boni but bayer isn’t gonna sell and he’s cost an arm and a leg now anyway.

        Schick on the other hand would be a nice drakhorse signing and would produce goals if he stays healthy. That’s a big IF tho.

  2. Let’s talk affordable, let’s talk Serhou, let’s talk David, don’t waste our time with 50mil plus operations. We know Milan will not fork out that amount of money on any one player. Unless this is a distraction ploy…

  3. Why always this name??!! Milan no need another winger. Milan already have okafor & leao and so pulisic. All milan need is giroud replacement, the true no. 9. Boniface or guirassy its good idea…
