As Leonardo announced his decision to leave AC Milan, the cloud of uncertainty looms over the future of this club. With the departure of Leonardo, we could be in for a exodus of players from Milan.

The likes of Pirlo, Ronaldinho, and Pato could be in for a move away from the Rossoneri after enduring an indifferent season.

After Inter Milan's treble winning season, AC Milan would surely like to revamp their squad to pose a title challenge next season.

Milan shouldn't leave it too late to bring in fresh faces to revitalise the ageing squad.

The talented Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko has long been linked with Milan but somehow a deal didn't come to fruition.

Dzeko, too, has expressed his willingness to join the Milan club so it wouldn't be an uphill task to bring him in this time around. Milan's forward line is not the strongest. It lacks aggression and pure strength.

Dzeko is a monster of a striker with a thunderous finish. His imposing stature is enough to send thundershowers across the opponent's defence.

His heading prowess is remarkable with a lethal shot and is the right person to lead the attack for AC Milan.

Dzeko's eye-catching performances in the Bundesliga have already made him a sought-after striker across Europe with a multitude of top clubs keeping tabs on him.

Although Wolfsburg is not keen on selling him, a substantial bid from a top-notch team like Milan could be enough to convince the Bundesliga outfit.

Rumours are rife that Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are interested in signing the lanky Bosnian striker.

So, Milan should act quickly and wisely to head-off any bidding war which will shoot Dzeko's price to outrageous levels.

After qualifying for the Champions League, Tottenham is in for a marquee signing to strengthen their hold in the League.

Liverpool, on the other hand, are busted after failing to finish in the top four and would be on the lookout for quality players to boost their chances next season.

Also, the speculated transfer of Torres would leave a big void which has to be plugged with a big name.

However, with Champions League football beckoning at Tottenham, Dzeko may prefer the North London club ahead of Liverpool should a bidding war takes place.

The best option for Milan would be placing the bid as soon as possible to avoid all such aforementioned tussles and bidding war.

Wolfsburg would be willing to sell Dzeko for a sum of £20m - £25m and considering the reputation of the player, that's a quality buy.
