I know from numerous people’: Arsenal are ‘definitely’ trying to sign £50m Dutch player,

Arsenal are looking hard at the market to try and sign a new striker and it appears Joshua Zirkzee is indeed a name on their list.

The Gunners know they need to sign a forward to try and get over the line this season but FFP issues are giving them a headache. A number of names are being linked, with Dusan Vlahovic and Ivan Toney two of the big names mentioned.

However, there are others out there as well for Edu to consider. One of whom is reportedly said to be Bologna striker, Joshua Zirkzee.

And according to Telegraph journalist Sam Dean, Zirkzee is definitely a player Arsenal hold an interest in.

Arsenal would love to sign Joshua Zirkzee
Speaking on the Charles Watts YouTube channel, Dean discussed a number of items around Arsenal and in doing so, touched on the interest in Zirkzee.

“I think we’ll start with start with Zirkzee. I think if he is a player – and basically what I know from numerous people now – is that Arsenal is are are closely monitoring quite a few strikers in Europe and he is definitely one of them they’re keeping an eye on. Whether that means they can make an offer for him this month I don’t know. I think it’s probably unlikely at this stage still when they can make an offer for him in the summer, maybe a different issue or maybe he’s one of the ones on the list that they could consider for the summer. All I know is he’s definitely a player they like and they admire and as I said in the story I think it’s still pretty unlikely that a January move can happen. I think for January what needs to happen really for Arsenal is is for the dominoes to fall,” Dean

Not the man for right now
While a player like Toney or Vlahovic has that bit more experience at the top level and is a more or less guarantee of goals, Josh Zirkzee is not quite there yet.

For Arsenal to make him their number one priority and splash the cash this January on him would stink a bit of desperation.

It’s been claimed Bologna want around £50m for Zirkzee. And while that is cheaper than some of the other options, there’s a reason for it as well.

Zirkzee is a talented player and has been dubbed as ‘extraordinary’ for his ability, while the Dutch media have even suggested he outdoes Erling Haaland in most categories.

But right now, at 22, he’s not the man Arsenal need and he’d definitely be one better looked at in the summer.
