Edin Dzeko will be leaving Inter Milan this summer, as reports from Turkey suggest that the final details of his move to Fenerbahce have been resolved.

This will allow the Bosnian to put pen to paper for the Turkish giant, as his contract with Inter will expire next week, and a new deal won’t be signed.

The 37-year-old striker joined the club in 2021 for €2.8m from Roma and played an important role in Simone Inzaghi’s squad, scoring 31 goals across 101 appearances.

Since he won’t get a new deal, reports began to emerge that he would leave Italy for Turkey. He seems interested in joining Fenerbahce on a two-year deal following talks with his agent Alessandro Lucci.

According to Turkish outlet Hurriyet, all the final details have now been resolved, and the striker will sign a two-year contract with Fenerbahce.

The deal is expected to be completed soon as he is on holiday with his family in Marmaris, a resort on the Turkish coast. Once he’s given the green light, he’ll head to Istanbul to finalize his move.

Still, in Milan, reports emerged that Sandro Tonali had reached an agreement with Premier League side Newcastle.
This information emerged amidst strong reports that he is close to leaving San Siro in favor of Champions League football in the North East of England.

This could be what prompted his representatives to meet Milan on Wednesday to explore their options amidst offers from the Premier League for the 23-year-old midfielder.

According to reports, Newcastle tendered a formal offer of around €70m for Tonali, who will captain Italy during the upcoming Under-21 Euros this summer.

It is now left to Milan, who are still attempting to push that fee to a figure closer to €80m.

On Wednesday evening, top Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio said that Tonali has agreed on personal terms to join Newcastle this summer and that the Tynesiders are now awaiting the final go-ahead from Milan.

The deal is believed to be more than €3.5m per season in his current deal with the Rossoneri. The sum could increase significantly if he were to make a move to the Premier League.

According to Calciomercato, he could earn somewhere in the region of €6.5m, which could rise to €7.5m with performance-related bonuses.
