Arsenal will this summer look to significantly reinforce their attacking options. The Gunners will be happy to see reports tipping one of their main targets, who has been likened to Dennis Bergkamp, to leave his current employers at the end of the 2023/2024 campaign.

Former Italy international Francesco Graziani in December likened this £43m-rated player with Dennis Berkamp when he said:  “Technically he is very good and has shown that he sees the goal.

“In Zirkzee I seem to see the Dutch Dennis Bergkamp: someone who made your eyes shine with his technique.”

Speculation surrounding Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee’s future has intensified, with reports suggesting that the 22-year-old Netherlands international could bid farewell to his current club in the summer transfer window.

However, Arsenal faces stiff competition for Zirkzee’s signature, with Manchester United and Bayern Munich also reportedly vying for the Dutchman’s services.

Despite the competition, Calciomercato suggests that Zirkzee is poised to depart Bologna in the summer, provided there are no significant obstacles.

Zirkzee’s departure from Bologna is expected to trigger interest from various clubs, with Arsenal, a potential destination for the promising forward.

Renowned for his technical prowess and eye for goal, Zirkzee’s comparisons to Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp will certainly interest manager Mikel Arteta as he will work with the Directors to find the best legs to improve his current squad.

With nine goals and six assists in 24 appearances for Bologna this season, Zirkzee has been instrumental to Bologna’s season, as they currently sit sixth in the Serie A table.
