Juventus are reportedly on the hunt for a young striker, and they are keen on Bayern Munich's sensational forward Joshua Zirkzee.


According to a report from Calciomercato, the 19-year-old Dutchman is being targeted by Juventus, who need a young striker this month to act as an understudy to Alvaro Morata.


Zirkzee is one of football's most exciting talents, who is very highly regarded at Bayern Munich, yet he will find it extremely hard to displace Robert Lewandowski in the Bayern line-up.


Additionally, Gianluca Scamacca, currently on loan at Genoa from Sassuolo, has also emerged as another option this transfer window.


If Juventus move in for either Scamacca or Zirkzee, it will continue to highlight their intention to sign younger players now.


This is emphasised even more by the fact that Juventus signed Federico Chiesa and Dejan Kulusevski recently, both starring for the club despite their relatively young age.


Zirkzee has failed to nail down a starting birth in the Bayern squad, and if Andrea Pirlo can convince him that if he works hard, he can earn a place in the Bianconeri squad, he might consider a move even more than before.


Zirkzee has also been linked with a potential move to Everton, who are keen to add to their options in the attack.
