Galliani: Wolfsburg's Dzeko wants to join AC Milan

Galliani: Wolfsburg's Dzeko wants to join AC Milan

AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani says Edin Dzeko, who scored 26 goals last season to help Wolfsburg to its first Bundesliga title, wants to join the Serie A club.
The 23-year-old Bosnia striker was second on the leading scorer's list in Germany behind teammate Grafite with 28. Milan has been linked with a move for Dzeko throughout the offseason, but the clubs are currently deadlocked over his value.
"The attacker has spoken very clearly; he wants to come to Milan and Wolfsburg know full well through a letter of interest that Milan is interested in buying him," Galliani told Sky Sports Italia.
"Edin has a contract until 2011 and it will be up to Wolfsburg to decide if they sell him or not. The club continues to say that they won't do it, but I expect to try different routes. In the transfer market, patience is worthwhile."
Milan has also been linked with Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor, but the Togo international would command a higher transfer fee and wage than Dzeko.
"From today, I will wait another 48 hours. Only on Thursday will we look at other possibilities," Galliani said. "We know that it is difficult to negotiate for a player who wants to leave. It doesn't depend on the figure. Wolfsburg's refusal to sell up to now is a point of principle."
