Super Eagles-eligible striker Joshua Orobosa Zirkzee is attracting the attention of Premier League giants Arsenal and Italian powerhouse AC Milan. Both clubs are keen to secure his signature in the summer transfer window.
Arsenal, seeking a marquee striker to bolster their attacking options, view Zirkzee as the perfect solution after inconsistent performances from Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah. Milan, meanwhile, sees the 22-year-old as the ideal successor to Rafael Leao, who is facing a potential departure to Paris Saint-Germain.
Zirkzee, a product of Bayern Munich’s academy, has been a revelation for Bologna this season. His nine goals and four assists in 23 appearances across all competitions have showcased his talent and potential.
However, a January transfer is highly unlikely. Bologna has firmly stated their intention to keep Zirkzee until the summer.
Reports suggest Arsenal are prepared to offer over €40 million for the Dutchman, while Milan are strategizing to meet Bologna’s valuation of the player. Manchester United could also join the race for his signature.
Despite representing the Netherlands at youth levels, Zirkzee remains eligible to play for the Super Eagles due to his Nigerian mother.
With a contract at Bologna until June 2026, Zirkzee’s future transfer will be a closely watched saga, with Arsenal and AC Milan leading the charge.
