Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to sign Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic. The Serbian striker is also open to leaving the Italian giants in the future transfer windows.
Juventus are also open to selling him for the right price to any interested clubs. However, it is not yet clear in which window the Gunners will make a move for Vlahovic.
ARSENAL AND DUSAN VLAHOVIC TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are the clear favorite to sign Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano said that the Gunners have not shown any interest in him. This is because they felt disrespected because of the earlier negotiations. A report also claimed that after the interest of Juventus, his agent refused to talk to the Gunners. Hence, everyone thought that the deal was forever over. Although it looks like, reports in Italy tell a completely different story.
According to reports in Italy, Arsenal are back in for Dusan Vlahovic. The report also claims that Juventus are now open to selling for the right price. Hence, the Italian giants are asking a fee of 80-90 million for their Serbian striker. The report also claims that the striker no longer fits in the plans of Massimiliano Allegri. Hence, Juventus would like to sell him because of the demand of the striker in the market. However, it is not yet clear if they will make a move in January.
CHELSEA ARE ALSO MONITORING THE SITUATION
A number of reports also suggest that Chelsea are monitoring the situation. The report also claims that both Romelu Lukaku and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang would like to leave the club in the next summer transfer window. Hence, this is likely going to open space for new potential striker signings in the next summer transfer window. The new Chelsea owners also have the necessary money to pay high wages. Hence, Chelsea are certainly a tough competitor for the signature of Dusan Vlahovic.
The striker’s agent is also in active conversation with the interested sides. However, at the moment, Arsenal are not going to prioritize his signing in the January transfer window. The Gunners are first going to complete the signing of Mykhaylo Mudryk. He is the number one priority signing of Mikel Arteta. Hence, at the moment, the signing of Dusan Vlahovic is on the back burner. The same also goes for Chelsea. The blues are also prioritizing the signing of a midfielder in the January transfer window.
Therefore, both Arsenal and Chelsea are equal in the race for the signing of Dusan Vlahovic. The Gunners have only one recognized striker Eddie Nketiah in the squad. Gabriel Jesus is out with an injury. However, Nketiah is in brilliant form in recent matches. Hence, the signing of Dusan Vlahovic is not the priority in the January transfer window.
