The idea of pairing the Dutchman with Vlahovic appeals to many


Zirkzee continues to be one of the most talked about names in the current soccer market. The Dutch center forward, currently engaged in the European Championships with the orange national team, seems very close to signing with AC Milan but, in the last few hours, Juventus has reportedly entered the negotiations, ready for a blitz that could change the striker's destiny after a stellar season with the Bologna shirt.

The problem è the stalemate in negotiations between Milan and the Dutchman's entourage. The obstacle preventing the classic white smoke concerns the commission that Joorabchian's agent asks for his final okay, namely 15 million euros. A lot, too much for the Rossoneri top brass who are, in fact, stalling.

A moment of impasse that seems likely to favor Juventus's insertion. Thiago Motta, newly appointed coach of the Old Lady, knows Zirkzee perfectly, having coached him at Bologna. He would probably jump for joy if he could have him with sé even in Turin, the Bianconeri side. Moreover, the Juventus people like the idea of an offensive pair formed by Vlahovic and Zirkzee very much.

Whether and when Giuntoli will come forward remains to be seen. As known, 40 million euros are needed to "free" Zirkzee from Bologna (rescission clause) and another 15 to keep the agent happy. It cannot è be ruled out that Juventus, unlike Milan, is willing to spend what is needed and, as a result, blow the Dutchman to the Diavolo.
