Arsenal and Manchester United could be favourites to sign Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee this summer, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The Dutchman has been heavily linked with a move away from Bologna this summer despite the club qualifying for the Champions League.

AC Milan are one of his main admirers, but reports claim that the Rossoneri are unlikely to afford the hefty commission for his agent.

Kia Joorabchian is eyeing a package of at least €10-15m for the transfer and Milan are in no position to afford the brokerage fees.

This has put the Gunners and Red Devils in the front seat to land Zirkzee, who managed 19 goal contributions for Bologna last term.

Joorabchian is close friends with Gunners sporting director Edu Gaspar and he is said to prefer his client moving to the London giants.

Zirkzee has also been linked with Juventus after they appointed Thiago Motta as their new head coach from Bologna last week.
