FC Bayern loaned Joshua Zirkzee (19) to the Italian top-flight team Parma Calcio until the end of the season. So far, the Dutch junior international has played for the first team of the German record champions 17 times, scoring four goals. He has made 32 appearances for the FC Bayern II reserve team and scored 6 goals.
“Joshua has taken a giant stride thanks to the way he’s come on with us. He was part of the team that won the Champions League in Lisbon. It’s now important for him to get more playing time at a first division level. We’re convinced he can help Parma further. Thanks to the way he comes with us, Joshua has taken a giant step.
