Arsenal are reportedly trying very hard to secure the signing of Dusan Vlahovic in the January transfer window. Juventus are also ready to sell him for the right price.
However, the right price is likely very high for the Gunners to pay in January. Therefore, Mikel Arteta is also searching for striker options that are within the January budget.
ARSENAL AND DUSAN VLAHOVIC TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are trying their best to secure the signing of Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic in the January transfer window. The report also claims that they are in contact with his agent. However, they have not made a bid for the Serbian striker. The report also claims that Dusan is open to a move to the Gunners. Juventus are also open to selling the striker. He is no longer considered their star player. However, they are likely going to demand a high price for him.
This is because Dusan Vlahovic is still one of the best young strikers in Europe. Hence, Arsenal will have to make a mega bid to lure Juventus into selling Vlahovic in January. The report claims that Juventus are asking over 70 million for the striker. Hence, it is clear that they are hoping to recover the 75 million spent on him. Hence, a bid of over 70 million will be needed at least to start the negotiations. Therefore, there is certainly a big risk of signing Vlahovic in January.
THE GUNNERS HAVE TO BE CAREFUL DURING HIS DEALING WITH THE AGENT
A number of reports suggest that Arsenal were showing interest in signing him before Juventus signed him. However, his agent decided to ignore the calls of the Gunners. Hence, this rumor angered the fans. However, they were also happy that they did not sign a non-committed player. In the end, Juventus ended up signing him. However, nothing has worked so far for the Serbian. He has failed to live up to the expectations of the Juventus coaching staff and fans.
Therefore, Arsenal should be careful that Juventus and his agent are not using them to get a good fee from elsewhere. His agent has already done it once. Hence, the Gunners should be more careful. There are also chances that the Gunners will make a move for him in the summer transfer window. However, at the moment, Chelsea and Bayern Munich are also keeping an eye on the situation. Hence, there is no shortage of interest in the Serbian striker.
Hence, Arsenal will have to carefully deal with the potential transfer of Dusan Vlahovic. They are also aware that Gabriel Jesus is out for a few months and not years. Another thing is, they also have Eddie Nketiah in the squad. Gabriel Martinelli can also play as a striker. Their main January target Mykhaylo Mudryk can also play as a striker.
