Arsenal are favourites to sign Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee ahead of Juventus and AC Milan, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Gunners are on the hunt for a new centre-forward and Zirkzee has emerged as a top target, according to the Italian media.

It is now reported that Arsenal have a higher economic power than the Serie A giants and are leading the pursuit of the former Bayern man.

Bologna are currently on the cusp of Champions League football and this is expected to increase their valuation of the 22-year-old ace.

Zirkzee was previously valued in the region of €40m, but the Serie A outfit are now eyeing at least €60m which is not a problem for Arsenal.

The Dutchman has plenty of potential and he has been touted to secure a bigger move from Bologna during the summer transfer window.

He has yet to reach the heights of an elite striker with only 12 goals this term, but has the attributes to become one in the near future.
