Tuttosport: AC Milan in talks with Edin Dzeko over €25m move

By Claudio Perfetto -

According to Italian news outlet Tuttosport, AC Milan are in talks with Edin Dzeko over a possible summer move.

The reports state that Milan are keen on reinforcing their striking options this summer and are making Dzeko a priority.

The Bosnian was reportedly very close to joining Chelsea in the January transfer market; however, the parties could not come to a complete agreement and he remained at Roma.

Tuttosport states that the Rossoneri are ready to bid €25million euro for the striker in the summer window, which is €5million less than Chelsea offered in January.

Milan could look to sell current striker Nikola Kalinic, as the Croatian has not lived up to expectations and is enduring a difficult campaign.

There are also doubts over the future of Andre Silva, as the striker performed well in the Europa League group stages but is yet to score in Serie A.

As for Dzeko himself, the Rossoneri are willing to pay €4.5million-a-year plus bonuses, and talks have already begun.
