Arsenal have been fancied to make an approach for Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee when the transfer window reopens.

The Dutchman has had a good second season with the Serie A outfit, scoring 11 goals and providing six assists in all competitions.

His statistics are not exemplary, but interested clubs are said to be impressed by his physical presence and clever movements.

Gazzetta dello Sport claim that the Gunners have the perfect project for the 22-year-old for the 2024/25 season and beyond.

AC Milan are also keen on his services, but they could be outbid by the Gunners in the pursuit of the former Bayern ace.

The Rossoneri are said to be willing to spend €50m for the marksman, but reports claim that Bologna are eyeing much more.

They have set Rasmus Hojlund's transfer to Manchester United as a benchmark and could demand €75-80m for him.

It is left to be seen whether Arsenal will make such an outlay on Zirkzee when Viktor Gyokeres could be signed for the same price.
