Reports are suggesting that Arsenal are close to securing the signing of one of Dutch football’s most highly-rated prospects.

The Gunners have so far offloaded young forwards Chris Willock and Kaylen Hinds who have joined Benfica and Wolfsburg respectively.

Those moves appear to have made room for the club to bring in another promising goalscorer ahead of the new campaign.

According to reports, Arsenal are now close to reaching an agreement with Feyenoord over the signing of Joshua Zirkzee.

The teenager was in superb form over the past year, scoring 33 goals in 27 games to attract the interest of several big clubs.

Ajax were believed to have been working on securing the acquisition of Zirkzee but the Gunners have beaten the Dutch side to luring the highly-rated forward.
