The Rome based media outlet claim that in Italy, the likes of Juventus, Napoli and AC Milan like him alot.

Former club, Bayern Munich, have the option to re-sign Zirkzee for just 40 million euros but the striker may not want to return to the Allianz where Harry Kane is the first choice center forward.

At the moment, CdS report the 22-year-old is valued at 60-70 million euros (£59.8million) but the price tag could rise if interest from Premier League grows.

It is stated that Man Utd, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have a ‘strong interest’ in signing Zirkzee from Bologna.

In the current campaign, so far, the Dutch forward has directly contributed in 17 goals (11 goals and 6 assists) in 27 starts for the Serie A side.

The consistent performances recently earned him his first Netherlands call-up but a late hamstring injury means he would not be in action during the international break.

Man Utd need to reinforce the firepower up front to improve the goalscoring situation at Old Trafford. In your view, should they splash £59.8million to sign Joshua Zirkzee?
