Man United still have eyes on signing Bologna striker, Joshua Zirkzee.

Manchester United are gearing towards an important summer transfer window. First and foremost, the Reds have to decide whether they want Erik ten Hag to remain as manager or not, before they go out there and start pursuing their targets.

Among the positions that need addressing, regardless of whether there’s a change in gaffer or not, is striker. Anthony Martial has left. Rasmus Hojlund cannot do it all on his own. He needs some quality support.

Several names have been linked with filling that void, including Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee. Now, Sky Sports’ Lyall Thomas has provided an update on that front.

He says that United are still ‘closely monitoring’ the developments of the striker, alongside fellow Premier League club Arsenal. The summer transfer window officially opens this coming week.

Check out Lyall Thomas’ X post on the news here:

Zirkzee scored twelve goals across all competitions this season, as his personal stock continues to rise after an excellent nine months leading the line for the Serie A club.

Premier League interest may be too good to turn down due to the vast amounts of money within the English league, though Italian side AC Milan are also keen on acquiring Zirkzee, meaning the Dutchman does have a decision to make.

In terms of finding someone happy to split minutes with the aforementioned Hojlund, someone like Zirkzee who is still developing and growing would make sense. It all comes down to whether the young striker would be happy with that role, particularly when clubs with Champions League football on offer are also showing interest.
