Arsenal tracking Bologna striker

Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee is the latest player being linked with a move to Arsenal.

Standing 6 feet 4 inches tall, Zirkzee has been one of the reasons why Bologna have been one of the surprise teams in Serie A this season, currently standing fifth in the table, scoring eight goals and providing four assists.

A Dutch under 21 international, Zirkzee began his career with Feyenoord, before joining Bayern Munich. He struggled for game time at the Bundesliga club, and was sent on loan to first Parma and then Anderlecht, before joining Bologna in a permanent deal in 2022 for a fee of ₤7 million.

He has since played for them 37 times, and has so impressed that they have slapped a ₤50 million price tag on him.

Any move for him by the Gunners is unlikely to materialise until the summer. Bologna do not want to lose him in the middle of the season, and Arsenal are wary of FFP restrictions.
