BREAKING NEWS: confirmed by Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal for serie A star to bring him to Emirates in the summer. According to reports the German international has openly announced he would love to join Arsenal, The 22-year-old Dutchman has been in fine form this season for the Serie A side, contributing 21 goals and six assists in 31 games across competitions. Arsenal agrees €6m salary offer to lure Serie A star in the summer.


Arsenal is reportedly preparing a lucrative salary offer to secure the services of Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee during the upcoming summer transfer window. The 22-year-old Dutch talent has enjoyed an impressive campaign with the Serie A outfit, registering 11 goals and six assists in 31 appearances across various competitions. Notably, the bulk of his contributions – 10 goals and four assists in 28 league outings – have bolstered Bologna’s standing in the Serie A, where they currently sit fourth after 30 matches, holding a five-point advantage over fifth-placed AS Roma.

Despite having a contract valid until 2026, Zirkzee has attracted interest from Arsenal, who are on the lookout for a dynamic center-forward following lackluster performances from Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah. However, the Gunners face stiff competition from European heavyweights Bayern Munich, AC Milan, and Juventus for Zirkzee’s signature, according to Gianluca Di Marzo of Calcio Mercato via Sport Witness. Bayern holds a strategic advantage in the race due to a €40 million buy-back clause, yet Arsenal is prepared to offer Zirkzee a substantial €6 million salary package to entice him to the Emirates. Notably, his market value, as per transfermarkt, also stands at €40 million. Since joining Bologna in the summer of 2022, Zirkzee has notched 13 goals and provided eight assists in 52 appearances across all competitions.

Amidst these transfer speculations, Arsenal finds themselves amidst an impressive season under the guidance of manager Mikel Arteta. The Gunners are currently trailing Premier League leaders Liverpool by a mere two points after 30 matches, following a convincing 2-0 victory over Luton Town in their recent home fixture. Their immediate focus now shifts to an away clash against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, April 6, before they brace themselves for a high-stakes encounter against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals three days later. Despite narrowly missing out on the Premier League title race to Manchester City after leading for a staggering 248 days, Arteta’s men have displayed resilience and determination as they strive to end their prolonged two-decade-long league title drought. Additionally, their return to the Champions League quarterfinals after a 14-year hiatus underscores Arsenal’s renewed ambitions on the European stage, as they aim for a strong finish to the season.
