Arsenal consider surprising £50m bid for former Bayern Munich striker as chances of Ivan Toney transfer diminish in January

Introduction to the article:
Arsenal are reportedly considering a move for Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee as they look to strengthen their attack following a series of disappointing performances. However, Bologna’s high valuation of the player has made the potential deal complicated.

Arsenal’s Struggling Form

Arsenal’s recent form has been underwhelming, with just one win in seven games and a mere five goals scored during that period. Mikel Arteta is eager to improve the team’s attacking options and is open to making signings during this transfer window.

The Complicated Move for Zirkzee

Bologna’s valuation of Joshua Zirkzee at £50m has made the potential transfer challenging for Arsenal. The Italian club has indicated that they are not willing to part ways with the Dutch forward, complicating the Gunners’ pursuit of the player.

Alternative Targets

In the event that a deal for Zirkzee falls through, Arsenal may turn their attention to other striking options. Getafe’s Borja Mayoral is another player of interest for the Gunners, with a reported initial bid of £22m being rebuffed by the Spanish club as they hold out for a higher fee.
