Inter Milan are fading away in the race to sign Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee, as Juventus and AC Milan are ready to go head-to-head.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

Zirkzee is certain to be one of the hottest names in the summer transfer window in Serie A.

And it is not hard to understand why.

Zirkzee has been in hugely impressive form all season. He has scored twelve goals and made four assists in the league.

The former Bayern Munich striker’s form has been key to Bologna’s surprise push for Champions League football.

That has led to the sense that Bologna will not be able to hang on to Zirkzee.

But the next destination for the 22-year-old has been less clear.

According to the Gazzetta, it is not likely to be Inter that sign Zirkzee.

Reports in recent days have indicated that the Nerazzurri are thinking about making the Dutchman a priority target.

However, the Gazzetta report, Inter have decided that they are not going to go after Zirkzee.

The reason is fairly simple – the price tag.

Bologna will demand no less than 50-60 million to allow Zirkzee to leave this summer.

That would be a massive investment for Inter. And the Nerazzurri have other areas of the pitch that are greater priorities.

In attack, Inter already have the likes of Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram. Then, Mehdi Taremi is arriving on a free transfer from Porto.

On the other hand, the Gazzetta report, both Juventus and Milan see Zirkzee as a major target.

Therefore, it is likely to be the Bianconeri and the Rossoneri who make big pushes to sign the Dutchman.

And from the Premier League, there is interest from Arsenal, the Gazzetta reports.
