AC Milan Shortlist Inter & Juventus Target Edin Dzeko As A Replacement Should Zlatan Ibrahimovic Depart
AC Milan could move for Roma captain Edin Dzeko if Zlatan Ibrahimovic is to leave the club according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
Ibrahimovic’s current contract with the Rossoneri club is due to expire at the end of August and should he not extend his stay with the club, AC Milan do not wish to be found unprepared and have identified potential replacements.
Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic is a potential replacement but Dzeko is seen as above all others. The Bosnia and Herzegovina national team forward could leave Roma for budgetary reasons.
The report from the Milan based news outlet goes on to explain that AC Milan management are well aware that they are not alone in courting Dzeko, who is also understood to have interest in his services from Inter and Juventus.
This season Dzeko has made 40 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored 18 goals and provided 12 assists.
