Milan home in on Dzeko

AC Milan look poised to spend some of the world-record fee they received for Kaka by buying Wolfsburg hot-shot Edin Dzeko.

Brazil superstar Kaka left for Real Madrid on Monday evening for £59million, but already the Italian giants have identified Dzeko as the man to add some sparkle back to the Rossoneri.

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has confirmed the Italian side’s interest in Dzeko, who was a major player in the German club’s first ever Bundesliga title triumph.

The Wolfsburg striker has previously been linked with both Arsenal and Manchester City. But Milan are in pole position to sign the Bosnian after Galliani confirmed he had met with Dzeko’s father on Saturday.

He told Sky Italia: “I was in Sarajevo for Dzeko.

“We like him a lot. Now we wait for Wolfsburg.”

The 23-year-old grabbed an amazing 32 goals in 34 games for Wolfsburg last season and has scored 12 times in just 17 games for Bosnia.

Wolfsburg boss Felix Magath is desperate to keep the former Fk Teplice star, but the player is understood to have set his heart on a move to Serie A.

Dzeko has been quoted as saying: “They [Milan] have always been my favourite club, right back to my days as a small boy, growing up in Sarajevo.”
