Arsenal makes a U-turn about their interest in Serie A star

Arsenal was anticipated to shift their focus towards signing Joshua Zirkzee after Benjamin Sesko opted to extend his stay at RB Leipzig.

The Gunners have been actively seeking a new striker this summer, with Sesko quickly emerging as their preferred choice. Despite Sesko’s strong finish to last season, Arsenal’s plans have been disrupted by his decision to remain with RB Leipzig.

With Sesko out of contention, Zirkzee became an apparent alternative, and Arsenal had been linked with the Dutchman for some time.

However, a report in The Athletic suggests that Arsenal will not be prioritising Zirkzee as initially expected. According to the report, the Gunners do not rate Zirkzee as highly as previously suggested, and they are not pursuing his signing with serious intent.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Zirkzee is an exciting attacker to watch, but he is not prolific and he would not solve the problem we have upfront.

We have other targets that we can sign to improve our goals return, so we need to be patient and get the right man.

Because we have a number of attackers who are not scoring so many goals, it does not make sense to add Zirkzee to our group.


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. Please let us go and get Osihmen if Napoli lower the price to at least 100million euros. We are sure that he will solve our scoring of goals problem. Mind you! Osihme is always a little winner in his playing career. We will make a statement by signing Osihme.

  2. whoever Arsenal end up with it is clear they are second or third choice – I wonder how that feels as the new player, only wanted because the others ahead of you didn’t want Arsenal

    this is not a situation Arsenal should have got ourselves into!

    1. Ridiculous statement as Arsenal.ha e never said publicly they want anyone. Its conjecture so how would any new player believe they’re 2nd or 3ed best ?

      We chased the guy who ended up at Chelsea and then bought Trossard … doubt any of these guys have any issues as they are playing for a top team now in Arsenal and on good wages.
