Sportitalia: Bournemouth star emerges as latest Zirkzee alternative for Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

A new name has emerged on AC Milan’s list of striker targets and it is Dominic Solanke of Bournemouth, according to a report.

According to what is being reported by Sportitalia, the number one target for the striker role remains Joshua Zirkzee and they are still hoping to get that deal over the line in the coming days and weeks. As a reminder of the latest on that front, the hold-up is the commissions his agent wants.

However, the management have turned to the Premier League in the search for alternative targets and Solanke from Bournemouth is a profile that they like a lot. He would be a costly investment, given how well he has done and his margins for growth.

The 26-year-old came through the academy at Chelsea before moving to Liverpool and then joining Bournemouth in 2019. Last season he scored 19 goals in 38 Premier League games, adding three assists, and scoring a goal in the FA Cup and EFL Cup too.

Transfermarkt has his market value down as €40m while he has a contract running until June 2027 so the Cherries have the leverage to negotiate a high price for their star player. He is a team-mate of Milos Kerkez, formerly of Milan.

  1. Several Bournemouth players I’d think more suitable for Milan, there’s nothing in this at all other than it being an easy photoshop because he already wears red and black.

  2. i’d take him over zirkzee.he has 19 goals in a tougher league and a smaller club with some assists too.plus no stupid commisions from some over entitled agent

  3. He has 65m release clause. We are not going to spend 65m and we wont be paying him silly epl wages so this is rubbish rumour.

    Realistically, we need to sign experience CF. Lukaku is ideal. Proven player, has Serie A experience, good targetman, can bring others into play which is good for Leao & Pulisic. He still has a few good years in him and we have great relations with Chelsea. With tight budget he ticks most of the boxes.

  4. What a sad, sick joke if this is true!!!! Milan are led by a bunch of empty-headed clowns and fools who have absolutely no idea how to manage a football club. Cannot even decide the colour of the kitchen sink!!!!!
