According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Arsenal is ready to offer Lucas Torreira and £46 million for Dusan Vlahovic. Arsenal were expected to make the Torreira loan a permanent transfer at £12.6 million. However, the report says that Torreira can become a permanent player at the cost of Dusan Vlahovic.

Dusan Vlahovic is in hot form and has caught the eye of everyone in Europe. He has scored 16 goals in 20 Serie A appearances. The Serbian is also the top scorer of the league ahead of Ciro Immobile. He matched Cristiano Ronaldo‘s record of scoring the most Serie A goals in a calendar year (33). Moreover, many elite clubs have shown interest in the Serbian and remain keen on signing him.

However, Vlahovic wants to complete this season with Fiorentina to bring them to Europe. Moreover, a transfer to Arsenal was seemed to be ruled out by the player. Even so, Arsenal has made an offer that has let Fiorentina think and they have not responded yet.

Torreira has been important for Fiorentina this season and a key part of their midfield. However, Vlahovic has great demand in the market now and Fiorentina may be able to get better offers than this. Clubs like Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester City all remain interested.

What can Dusan Vlahovic provide Arsenal?

Dusan Vlahovic has already showcased his finishing abilities in front of goal. He can improve Arsenal’s attack by quite a margin as Arsenal is unable to find a striker who can start week in and week out. Aubameyang is likely to leave Arsenal and Lacazette is not consistent with his performances. Moreover, Arsenal seems to have found their rhythm this season and can provide for Vlahovic to score.

Dusan Vlahovic is a physically strong striker who has a good pace to beat defenders or hold defenders. Moreover, he takes 3.6 shots per game (stat via whoscored) which can increase if he joins a better team. Arsenal can use Dusan Vlahovic’s help to make themselves a regular top-four contender and secure a place in the Champions League.

However, joining Arsenal will not guarantee Champions League football to Dusan Vlahovic. After a great season, he will expect more from himself and from the team he plays for. It will be very hard for him to deny interests from Real Madrid and Manchester City to join Arsenal.

Dusan Vlahovic is in remarkable form this season and it is understandable why Arsenal want him so much. However, some clubs may even offer more than what Arsenal has to secure the signature of the Serbian. However, it will be a great battle to see who signs Dusan Vlahovic and gets the best out of him.
