Journalist gives update on Milan’s market – De Paul, Dzeko, Calhanoglu, Firpo and more

By Oliver Fisher -

An update on the Milan market has arrived including confirmations that Edin Dzeko is a concrete target in the case that Olivier Giroud does not arrive.

Luca Marchetti (via MilanNews) reports how Chelsea have exercised their unilateral option for a one-year contract renewal, but the Frenchman has a promise from the club that if he wants to move to a club abroad he can go for free. If that does not materialise then Dzeko is a back-up target as he is a player who knows the Italian league inside out, is one year older but would be a low-cost deal.

The other intrigue concerns Hakan Calhanoglu who has not signed a renewal and has real and concrete interest from Atletico Madrid, who at the same time are also dealing with De Paul for that area of ​​the pitch. If Calhanoglu were to go to Atletico Madrid it is clear that on De Paul would have one less suitor. It is a difficult negotiation because the player is valued at €30m+ by Udinese, but Milan have already started contacts. Finally, Junior Firpo has been identified as a deputy to Theo Hernandez.
