BREAKING NEWS: confirmed by Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal wants to add an 22-year-old elite strike to their team ahead of next season. It’s no secret that Arsenal needs to add a goal scorer with experience to their front line this summer and the club has identified Bundesliga star as their preferred striker for the team. Arsenal in talks with exciting striker; ready to offer contract until 2029.


Arsenal’s quest for a seasoned goal scorer to bolster their attacking line this summer is widely acknowledged. The team’s current leading scorer, Kai Havertz, has notched up 12 goals in the ongoing 2023–24 season, including two against Chelsea recently, indicating a respectable goal tally for the campaign. Despite their collective achievement of 82 goals, making them the Premier League’s top scorers, there remains a lingering concern among some that the team lacks a consistent match-winner in the mold of Mo Salah or Erling Haaland, players who can reliably find the net week in, week out, a quality evident in their title rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.

While Gabriel Jesus has shown glimpses of goal-scoring prowess when injury-free, Arsenal is eyeing Joshua Zirkzee this transfer window, viewing him as a potential game-changer. Zirkzee, a 22-year-old striker from Bologna, has also netted 12 goals this season, according to WhoScored, showcasing his prowess as a true center-forward rather than an auxiliary attacker like Havertz. There’s optimism that under Mikel Arteta’s guidance, Zirkzee could further develop his abilities, following the trajectory of other players who have flourished under the manager in recent seasons.

Reports from Tuttosport, as cited by Football Italia, suggest that Arsenal is actively engaged in negotiations with Zirkzee’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, with talks revolving around a contract extension until 2029, accompanied by a substantial annual salary of €6 million. However, the outcome of these discussions remains uncertain at this juncture. Moreover, Arsenal faces competition from other clubs, including Milan, Aston Villa, Internazionale, and Manchester United, all vying for Zirkzee’s signature. Despite this, Arsenal may hold an advantage due to Joorabchian’s purported longstanding ties with the club, potentially tilting the scales in their favor during the player’s decision-making process, as reported by Footballwave
