Arsenal ‘very hot’ on the trail of £50m attacker likened to Dennis Bergkamp

Arsenal have been linked with Joshua Zirkzee in recent months and speculation is intensifying ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Gunners are obviously in great goal-scoring form at present, but there’s always scope to bring in reinforcements, particularly in the summer.

Now, a report from Italy has claimed that Arsenal are especially interested in the Bologna star, though other top clubs are in pursuit as well.

Calciomercato has reported that Zirkzee has been AC Milan’s main target for months, while Bayern Munich are also seemingly circling with a view to moving for the player.

The report then claims several Premier League clubs are interested in Zirkzee, with Arsenal ‘certainly a very hot option’ for the in-form Dutchman.

Joshua Zirkzee earns comparisons with Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp
Zirkzee has caught the eye of some of the top clubs in the Premier League thanks to his impressive form in Serie A this term.

The 22-year-old attacking talent has registered 11 goals and six assists from 29 club appearances in all competitions this season.

Zirkzee is a quality player who’s shining at present and also has a very high ceiling, so it’s not surprising that the likes of Arsenal are apparently pursuing him.

Indeed, there have even been comparisons between the Bologna talent and Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp, something that will no doubt go down a treat among Gooners.

Former Italy international Francesco Graziani is quoted as saying by Bologna Sport News in December: “Technically he is very good and has shown that he sees the goal.

“In Zirkzee I seem to see the Dutch Dennis Bergkamp: someone who made your eyes shine with his technique.”

At £50million, he’s not going to come cheap, but considering there have been comparisons to the legendary Gunners striker, he certainly seems like an option worth pursuing.
