According to reports by The Express, Arsenal are eager to sign Joshua Zirkzee, a striker for Bologna, in January to increase their offensive capacity. The Gunners will have to fork up almost £15 million more than his £34.3 million release clause as it's been suggested that a more reasonable asking price of £50 million might be appropriate for the Serie A team.

Arsenal will find it tough to absorb this cost given their present FFP circumstances after a summer of extravagant expenditure. In addition, Bologna has no intention of moving the 22-year-old, who in 22 games this season has contributed four assists and eight goals.
