If Parma thought the high-profile arrival of two centre-forwards during the January transfer window would be enough to keep the wolf from the door, they were very much mistaken.
Looking back now, Parma could be forgiven for wishing they’d never bothered. But, according to TMW, some of the biggest clubs in Europe haven’t been put off by the Dutchman’s struggles at the Stadio Ennio Tardini.
As for his potential future Parma, TMW ruled that out:
It almost goes without saying, at this stage, that Parma won’t be triggering the £14 million option-to-buy clause in Zirkzee’s contract.
Given Zirkzee’s poor form this season and unlucky injury situation, it is hard to think that any club will be offering up anything substantial for the Dutchman. The biggest question really is if the 19-year-old is in need of a fresh start or if a longer stint grinding on Säbener Straße will be better in the long run.
At this point, only the player and his agent probably know the answer to that.
