Juventus Striker could make Milan switch

Juventus striker Simone Zaza has given his personal approval of a switch to AC Milan.

The Italian international, who has reportedly had direct contact with Milan management, has given his personal approval to a transfer to the Rossoneri, with the club just needing to find a transfer fee agreement with Juventus.

The 25-year-old striker doesn’t appear to be in Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri’s plans for next season, especially given their busy transfer market this off-season, with the purchase of Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Zaza has stated that he would rather stay in Italy, despite attracting interest from English side West Ham, as well as Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg, and aims to find a club that would enable him to play more minutes than he is currently getting at Juventus.

Napoli and Roma are also reportedly interested in acquiring the 25-year-old striker, but it appears as if he favours Milan as first choice.

With Carlos Bacca most likely on the move, and not in Vincenzo Montella’s plans at the San Siro club, the acquisition of Zaza appears more likely.

Zaza played 19 games in all competitions for Juventus last year, scoring just 5 goals, compared to his 11 goal haul in the 2014/15 campaign with Sassuolo.
