Milan ponder move for Dzeko as Giroud alternative


Question marks still remain around Edin Dzeko’s future at Roma — but it’s a situation that the club will address soon.

It remains to be seen if new manager José Mourinho wants to keep hold of the Bosnian, but in the meantime, he is drawing interest on the transfer market.

Sky Sport reports that Milan are pondering a potential summer move for the ex-Manchester City attacker, who has one year remaining on his deal with Roma.

The Rossoneri’s first option is to acquire Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud on a permanent transfer. However, the costs surrounding the operation are very high and Milan are working to understand if the Blues will allow the Frenchman to leave on a free transfer.

Chelsea recently exercised an option to renew Giroud’s contract for one year — a decision that complicates a potential exit for the ex-Arsenal man.

If Milan find themselves unable to convince Chelsea to lower the costs associated with the deal, they could turn to Dzeko as a backup option.
