Inter Milan vice-president, Javier Zanetti, has hinted at the club’s intention to compete with Arsenal for the signature of Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee. 

The Serie A champions are eyeing reinforcements for their attacking lineup and see Zirkzee as a potential addition to bolster their squad.

Bologna’s impressive performance this season has put them on course for Champions League qualification, with Zirkzee emerging as one of the club’s best players, tallying 11 goals and four assists. The 22-year-old’s stellar form has attracted interest from several clubs, including Arsenal, where manager Mikel Arteta is eager to strengthen his striking options ahead of the upcoming campaign.

It is reported that Bologna has slapped a hefty price tag of €60 million (£51.3 million) on Zirkzee, whom they signed from Bayern Munich in a €8.5 million (£7.1 million) deal back in August 2022. Inter Milan, however, are undeterred by the valuation and are exploring the possibility of securing the Dutch striker’s services.

Speaking to Radio TV Serie A about the potential acquisition of Zirkzee, Zanetti praised the youngster’s talents, describing him as a “great champion” and highlighting his youth, talent, intelligence, and physical prowess. 


Zanetti hinted at the prospect of assembling a formidable attacking trio comprising Zirkzee, Lautaro Martinez, and Marcus Thuram, emphasising the potential of such a lineup in achieving significant objectives.

“Zirkzee is a great champion. We are talking about a young, talented, intelligent, physically very strong player. Someone like that would be useful to any great team aiming for important goals. Let’s see… if the opportunity arises we can think about it.

“With Zirkzee, Lautaro [Martinez] and [Marcus] Thuram we would have a young and strong attack. They would give us peace of mind.”

As the summer transfer window approaches, the race for Zirkzee’s signature intensifies, with both Inter Milan and Arsenal vying for the promising striker’s services. The coming weeks may reveal further developments in this intriguing transfer saga.
