A report reveals how Inter Milan can buy Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee for just 40 million euros this summer.

The 22-year-old is enjoying a sensational campaign at the Renato Dall’Ara. He helped the Rossoblu secure a historic qualification to the Champions League.

The Dutchman impressed the fans and observers with his unconventional way of interpreting the striker role. He often drops back and help his teammates in the buildup.

Bologna signed the young attacker from Bayern Munich in 2022, but the Bavarians have a buy-back clause worth 40 million euros.

Moreover, the Emilians would owe the Bundesliga giants a significant sell-on fee if they offload Zirkzee this summer.

However, Il Corriere dello Sport (via FcInterNews) unveils a new important detail.

The Roman newspaper claims that the 40-million clause doesn’t only apply to Bayern Munich, but to any other suitor as well.

So in other words, the player has a release clause in his contract that allows him to leave in the summer for 40 million euros

As the source explains, the mastermind behind this ploy is the player’s agent Kia Joorabchian. The latter also ensured himself a large commission from any transfer fee.

Nevertheless, Bologna will be hoping for a bidding war that raises the player’s value and allow them to sell their prized asset for the highest bidder.

This season, Zirkzee has contributed with 11 goals and five assists in 34 Serie A appearances thus far. He also scored a goal and provided his teammates with two assists in three Coppa Italia outings.

The 22-year-old had also attracted the interest of AC Milan, Juventus and Arsenal.
