Joshua Zirkzee news

Zirkzee wanted by Arsenal & United

Arsenal and Manchester United remain interested in signing Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee this summer.

The Dutchman had a decent second season with Bologna where he scored 12 goals and provided seven assists.

His performances have attracted plenty of interest and it was recently reported that he could move to Milan.

However, the Rossoneri have an issue due to the agent commission.

The club are prepared to pay the striker's €40m release clause over several months, but a deal is unlikely.

The player's agent Kia Joorabchian wants a commission of €15m which the Rossoneri are reluctant to pay.

This has reportedly opened the door for Arsenal or United to sign him. It is left to be seen whether they try to.

Arsenal may want a more high profile striker up front next season as they look to challenge for the league.

United, on the other hand, may prefer a cheaper alternative to provide back-up to Rasmus Hojlund next term.
