Joshua Zirkzee is seemingly open to a West Ham United move from Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window.
The Holland under-21 international is a £4 million summer transfer target for Hammers boss David Moyes according to a report from BILD.
The 20-year-old has spent this season on loan with Anderlecht and has been in fine form for the Belgian outfit, bagging 15 goals and nine assists in 38 games so far (Transfermarkt).
Zirkzee is clearly a very talented young player. And David Moyes could do a lot worse than bringing the Bayern Munich owned ace to the London Stadium in the summer.
West Ham have been linked with a plethora of centre-forwards since we sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax back in January 2021.
The 20-year-old is the latest name to be added to that list and it seems as though the young Dutchman could very well be open to joining the Hammers before the start of next season.
One thing seems very clear…his future doesn’t lie with Bayern Munich.
Zirkzee leaves door open to West Ham move
The Bayern Munich ace was speaking exclusively to Belgian media outlet NOS about his future with the Bundesliga giants.
And Zirkzee admitted that it won’t make much sense to return to Bayern after his loan spell with Anderlecht finishes:
“We will only talk again (with Bayern) after the season. I don’t think it makes much sense to go back to Bayern after a season in which I’ve played a lot – I just want to play. And, after this season, I will see where that is best and then I will also talk to Bayern.”
Well, it’s clear to see that if West Ham really want to sign Zirkzee, we shouldn’t have any problem in doing so.
The 20-year-old is obviously open to leaving Bayern and the German giants are keen to shift him on for around £4 million as well (BILD).
We believe that the Dutch youngster would be a very smart addition for the Hammers for that kind of money and would provide great competition for Michail Antonio at the London Stadium.
Standing at 6ft 4in tall, Zirkzee possesses the physical capabilities that David Moyes usually looks for in a striker.
For such a young player he is very strong and is very well accustomed to playing with his back to goal.
Despite Zirkzee’s height and physical progress, he is still fairly quick along the ground and is obviously a very good finisher as well.
Signing the 20-year-old for just £4 million in the summer already seemed like an absolute no-brainer for West Ham United.
That is even more of the case now following Zirkzee’s comments on his future yesterday.
