Arsenal is keeping a close watch on Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee, but securing the Dutchman’s signing would require a significant transfer fee.
The Gunners, seeking to bolster their attacking options for a stronger push in the Premier League title race, are exploring potential reinforcements, given Gabriel Jesus’s recurring injuries and uncertainties surrounding Eddie Nketiah’s future.
The Telegraph reports that Arsenal has been monitoring the 22-year-old and may consider making a move for him during the January transfer window.
Nevertheless, Bologna will negotiate a deal at a fee of approximately £50 million ($64 million) for the center-forward. Joshua Zirkzee, who joined Bologna from Bayern Munich last summer, has a contract in place until 2026.
It’s noteworthy that Bayern Munich inserted a release clause in his contract exclusively applicable to them, providing the German giants with the option to repurchase him at a favorable price.
