Bologna take on Genoa at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara tonight, and AC Milan’s technical director Geoffrey Moncada is reportedly in attendance to watch.

As revealed by Gianluca Di Marzio, Moncada is in the stands for a game which features many players who could become protagonists of the mercato in the weeks and months to come given their talent.

The journalist reports that the focus is ‘above all on Joshua Zirkzee’ who has been one of the big surprises of the current Serie A campaign. He has eight goals and two assists in 20 games across all competitions for the Rossoblu.

If you read our site regularly this should not be a surprise given our exclusive a couple of months ago, which stated that Milan are scouting Zirkzee. The Dutchman seems a fit for project at 22 years of age, with Serie A experience, the potential to grow and a reasonable salary.

Di Marzio adds that Lewis Ferguson is another name Moncada likes. He is one of Scotland’s most exciting young midfield prospects, while he has six goal contributions (four goals, two assists) in Serie A this season.

He is disqualified for tonight’s match against Genoa so the chief scout will not cast an eye on him, but we conducted an interview with his agent last year after the Rossoneri were linked with a move by several sources.

It is not just Bologna talents that Milan are keen on, though. Genoa’s Albert Gudmundsson has caught Moncada’s eye, another revelation in Serie A given his seven goals in 17 games.

He actually has links to Milan somewhat given that his great-grandfather played for the Diavolo in the 1940s, and the Icelandic forward has spoken of his dream to follow in his footsteps.
