Zirkzee, 23, only joined the northern Italian outfit from Bayern Munich in 2022.

He has since established himself in Thiago Motta’s starting eleven and helped the team finish in the Champions League spots.

He scored 11 goals and also assisted four goals in Serie A.

According to Sky Sports, Zirkzee’s performances have done enough to earn interest from Manchester United.

The Red Devils are keen on adding more firepower to the squad this summer following the exit of Antony Martial.

Zirkzee’s record in Italy is slightly better than Rasmus Hojlund‘s before he made the move to Old Trafford for £72 million last summer.

The Dutchman managed one more goal than Hojlund’s ten and the same number of assists in the same amount of appearances.

However, Zirkzee will cost much less than the Danish striker due to his release clause worth £34m.
