Joshua Zirkzee ready to rebuff Arsenal to join Manchester United

Joshua Zirkzee is reportedly ready to snub Arsenal as he is keen on joining Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Caught Offside, Joshua Zirkzee is the subject of interest from Manchester United. The Bologna striker, who has a release clause worth £34 million in his contract with the Serie A club, is also a target for Arsenal. However, the Dutch attacker is ready to rebuff the North London club as he wants to join the Red Devils in the summer transfer window.

The rapid rise of Joshua Zirkzee

Joshua Zirkzee has been one of the best young players in Serie A since joining Bologna from Bayern Munich in August 2022. The Dutchman struggled to get going at the Allianz Arena and has finally found a stable footing in his career during his spell at the Renato Dall’Ara Stadium.

While the 23-year-old has not been highly productive, he still impressed in the 2023/24 season. Zirkzee contributed to 19 goals in 37 appearances across all competitions last term by finding the back of the net 12 times and providing seven assists.

Meanwhile, Joshua Zirkzee’s progress at Bologna FC has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe. A move to the Premier League might be on the cards, with Arsenal and Manchester United vying for his signature heading into the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, the Dutch striker will cost around £34 million due to a release clause in his contract.

Premier League move on the cards?

Manchester United’s interest in Joshua Zirkzee is understandable. The Red Devils have been scouring the market for a striker heading into the summer transfer window after losing Anthony Martial as a free agent. So, Zirkzee has emerged as a viable target for Manchester United, with the Dutchman ready to move to Old Trafford.

As for Arsenal, the Gunners are keen on signing a striker after Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah failed to make their mark in the 2023/24 season. However, Arsenal will fail to secure Joshua Zirkzee’s services, with the Dutchman keen on joining Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

Coughing up £34 million should not be an issue for Manchester United. As for Arsenal, the Gunners must set their sights elsewhere for a striker, with Zirkzee snubbing the North London club.
