As we published yesterday on “Arsenal Analysis” agent Ifran Redžepagić met with Adriano Galliani and Ariedo Braida, AC Milan’s President and Finane director respectively, in Sarajevo to discuss Dzeko’s transfer.
We can now reveal that Dzeko has made his choice and AC Milan will most likely be his next club, not Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea, Inter or Lyon.
This looks likely after his agent announced today that negotiations with Wolfsburg, Dzeko’s current club, for a contract extension, have been put on hold as they will now begin transfer negotiations with AC Milan.
“I was due to be at Wolfsburg on Monday for a meeting with the top people of the club, but the situation has completely changed after Milan showed their interest. That is why the meeting has been canceled. Now it's up to the two clubs, if they will agree or not” said Redžepagić.
It is obvious that talks with the other clubs have been put on hold and Milan is now the preferred option. Milan is reported to have offered £25.8 m (€30m)and a £1.72m (€2m) annual salary.
Dzeko has already stated that Milan has always been his boyhood team and that it will be a dream come true to play for them.
"They have always been my favourite club, right back to my days as a small boy, growing up in Sarajevo" he said recently.
