Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly on the verge of completing a loan deal for Bayern Munich youngster Joshua Zirkzee.
Zirkzee, 19, joined Bayern Munich’s youth academy in 2017 after making the switch from Feyenoord in a deal worth just £135,000, as per Transfermarkt.
Since his arrival in Germany, the highly rated striker has successfully climbed his side’s youth rankings and gone on to make his senior first-team debut at the back-end of 2019.
The talented Dutch forward who stands at a whopping six-feet, three-inches has already been directly involved in five goals in his first 17 appearances in all competitions for Bayern Munich.
However, according to a recent report from TalkSPORT, the German champions are open to allowing their young starlet to join Everton on-loan in an attempt to continue his impressive development.
Currently forced to be without in-form forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin who has been ruled out through injury, the Toffees are favourites to land Zirkzee as a replacement.
TalkSPORT claim that a short-term loan deal is the most likely outcome, although the Toffees would like to include an option to make Zirkzee’s switch permanent.
