How things will continue for Joshua Zirkzee is completely open. The player has enjoyed being on the pitch regularly: „I would prefer to have a guarantee of playing time. That’s possible in Anderlecht and at other clubs too,“ he told the Belgian daily Het Laatste Nieuws.

The club is already searching for Lewandowski’s replacement and have set their eyes on Sasa Kalajdzic.
