Joshua Zirkzee

Manchester United were heavily linked with Joshua Zirkzee in the winter transfer window but the striker ended up staying with Bologna.

Reports in Italy indicate that the Dutch forward is expected to finally leave the Serie A side in the summer and Man Utd are leading among foreign clubs to secure his signing.

According to Calcio Mercato, barring any surprises, Zirkzee will say goodbye to the Rossoblu in the next transfer window with multiple Italian and foreign clubs after him.

In Italy, the likes of AC Milan, Juventus and Napoli are interested. On the other hand, abroad, Man Utd lead all to secure him.

The 22-year-old striker has got a clause worth 40 million euros in his contract but it is only valid for his former club, Bayern Munich.

CM claim the rest will have to pay much more to get his signing done in summer.

Last month, Gazzetta revealed Bologna want £68.5million (80 million euros) for Zirkzee, mainly because Man Utd paid the fee to lure Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta last summer.

In the current campaign, so far, the young center forward has started 21 games for the Italian side and directly contributed in 15 goals.

At the weekend, the former Eredivisie striker set up two goals for Bologna, who ended up defeating Sassuolo 4-2 in the Serie A.

At Old Trafford, Hojlund has netted four goals in the last many Premier League games but Martial is injured and the strike-force seriously lacks quality and depth.

In your opinion, should Man Utd pay £68.5million to secure the signing of Joshua Zirkzee in the next transfer window?
