Bayern Munich’s Joshua Zirkzee (21) will undergo a medical at Italian side Bologna on Monday before signing a four-year contract until 2026, according to Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg.
The Bundesliga side will receive a reported €8.5m for Zirkzee. Bayern have also secured a 50% sell-on bonus, matching and buy-back clause for the Dutch youth international, as well as receiving a further €1m for every 25th match that Zirkzee plays for Bologna.
Interest in Zirkzee from Bologna was first reported on Wednesday and the Serie A side have moved quickly to sign the Dutchman ahead of Newcastle United, Anderlecht and Club Brugge, all of whom had been in discussions to sign the former Feyenoord youth player.
The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Belgian side Anderlecht, scoring 18 and creating 13 in 47 games across all competitions, but failed to establish himself within the Bayern Munich squad.
With the sale of Zirkzee, sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić will have brought €100m into the club through sales, the first time Bayern Munich have broken the €100m barrier.
