British Queen celebrates

Bologna's Joshua Zirkzee remains a key target for both Arsenal and Manchester United this summer. The Premier League's 2024 summer transfer window opens on

Friday, June 14, and closes on August 30 at 11 PM UK time in England and midnight in Scotland.

Reports from Sky in Italy indicate that AC Milan continues to pursue the 23-year-old striker. Representatives from Milan flew to London late last week for discussions, but no agreement was reached. However, they remain in contact with Zirkzee's representatives.

Zirkzee's contract includes a £34 million (€40 million) release clause and has two years remaining.

Arsenal is looking to recruit a young striker to develop, having shifted their focus away from players like Newcastle's Alexander Isak and Brentford's Ivan Toney.

Juventus also has an interest in Zirkzee but is currently focusing on other targets. They would need to sell a striker to facilitate his arrival.
