Marko Arnautovic is expected to leave Bologna in the summer and AC Milan could secure him for a low transfer fee, a report claims.
According to today’s edition of Il Resto del Carlino (via SempreMilan.it), Bologna will make some sales in the summer to lower the current wage bill and the first name on the list is Marko Arnautovic, who is on the fringes of Thiiago Motta’s plans.
The Milan management are admirers of the Austrian striker who could arrive to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with an asking price of around €5m expected to be enough. It is a low figure for a player who has nine goals and one assist in just 19 games this season, although he is 34.
Arnautovic earns €2.7m net per season at Bologna, a figure that makes him the highest paid player in the history of the Emilia-Romagna club. A sale of him appears mandatory for them, with Milan aiming to try get as much of a discount as possible.
