Super Eagles eligible striker heavily linked to Arsenal

Premier League powerhouse Arsenal have emerged as leading contenders in the pursuit of Super Eagles of Nigeria eligible striker Joshua Zirkzee.

The Dutch sensation, whose stellar performances have garnered attention from clubs across Europe, finds himself with a summer decision to make as Arsenal leads the race for his services with Italian giants AC Milan closely monitoring the situation.

According to insights provided by football transfer expert Daniele Longo, Arsenal has positioned itself as the frontrunner in securing Zirkzee’s services.

Recent reports indicate that the potential move to the Emirates Stadium is gaining traction, with Arsenal being described as a ‘very hot option’ for the talented 22-year-old striker.

Despite Arsenal’s apparent advantage, Milan remains determined in their quest to land Zirkzee. The Rossoneri consider the striker as a key target for reinforcing their attacking lineup in the upcoming transfer window.

However, should Milan face obstacles in their pursuit of Zirkzee, they have identified RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko as a viable alternative. The Austrian forward is seen as a potential solution to bolster Milan’s attacking options if negotiations for Zirkzee prove challenging.

Born to a Dutch father and Nigerian mother, red-hot Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee is eligible to represent the Netherlands and Nigeria.

Alongside the choice of his next club, the forward in a recent interview revealed his plans for the international scene when he said he was open to representing his mother’s country Nigeria, if the Netherlands are not interested in his services.
