Joshua Zirkzee is a 21 year old, 1,93m tall young Dutch striker who has been at FC Bayern since the U17s.
He gained instant prominence in the 19/20 Bundesliga season when he scored in both his first sub appearances, as a 18 year old, both times with his very first touch of the ball. He is immensely clinical and a proper goalgetter.
He was part of the squad that won the treble.
After Bayern signed Choupo-Moting as Lewandowski backup he had little chance for game time and was loaned out, first to Parma in Serie A where he had little impact, then to Anderlecht last season where he shone in the Belgian league, scoring 16 league goals and two goals in the Cup during the 21/22 season.

Fulham are in talks to sign versatile Bayern Munich forward Joshua Zirkzee.
Bournemouth and Southampton have also shown an interest in the Holland Under-21 international but he favours a move to Craven Cottage.
Fulham manager Marco Silva wants new signings after admitting last weekend that his side are not ready for their opening game of the season against Liverpool on Saturday.
Zirkzee spent last season on loan at Anderlecht, where he scored 16 goals in 41 games.
The 21-year-old has made a total of 17 appearances for Bayern. He was in talks over a move to Rennes but is targeting a switch to the Premier League.

Bayern are ready to sell him as he wants and deserves game time, and he's reportedly keen to go to the PL.
Fulham, Bournemouth and Southampton are on the case.
Why aren't Man United?

You need a striker, here is a striker. Tall, young, clinical, treble winner, Dutch, played at Bayern II as well. Perfect fit for Ten Hag.
30m £ will do. Hey, we'll be generous and let him leave for 25m.

Just seen the youtube compilations; makes Brobery look like Rooney and Artaunovic look like Messi.

We won’t pay a pound under £50m and that’s our opening offer!

At 21 you'd expect him to be already a little bit more developed, no? Has to be a reason why Bayern are so keen on letting him go.

They were keen to let go of one Toni Kroos too. We all know how that turned out.....
Bayern made a mistake on Kroos because they didn't think he was going to leave, but they underestimated his value to the squad and just didn't want to pay. Kroos was still a good and upcoming player before he hit his heights, Zirkzee has never shown the level of impact like Kroos before leaving the club.

He COULD become a great striker in theory, because he's already a quite good finisher, his hold up play isn't bad, his technique is is okay. But he seems to lack the proper mentality and spirit.

This scene describes him quite well unfortunately:

Bayern don’t let anyone go easily unless:

1. They have an abysmal injury record (Hargreaves)
2. They’re past their best (Schweinsteiger)
3. They’re not good enough (Sanches)

No thanks. Do not trust that club.

Renato Sanches just joined PSG after winning the league with Lille. He'd instantly be your best midfielder and is quite frankly better than Frenkie.

Not sure about the Frenkie comparison, but I agree that Sanches is so much better than he is perceived by many. He had a handful of slapstick performances in his early days that have stuck in people’s minds. I would have been excited if we had tried to sign him.

Not to be confused with the same excitement I have about us signing any random defensive midfielder in our dire situation.
