Arsenal favourites to sign Dutch striker ahead of Milan

Joshua Zirkzee news

Zirkzee on his way to Arsenal?

Arsenal have emerged as favourites to sign Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee ahead of AC Milan this summer.

The 22-year-old has had a good second season with the Serie A outfit, registering 12 goals and seven assists.

His form has caught the eye of several European clubs and Arsenal are one of those considering a summer proposal.

Givemesport now claim that Bologna are looking for at least £60m following their Champions League qualification.

Milan have been interested in signing him for a while but they are unlikely to meet the financial demands of Bologna.

This has handed a big boost to the Gunners, who appear prepared to make a huge outlay on a new centre-forward.

Zirkzee has yet to find consistency in front of goal, but he reportedly suits the playing style of manager Mikel Arteta.

The Dutchman operates in a similar way as Kai Havertz. He possesses better dribbling skills than the German ace.

Manchester United are also admirers of the ex-Bayern man, but they are unlikely to pay the price amid their financial issues.
