Arsenal fans will have nightmares regarding the transfer saga of Dusan Vlahovic this time last year, however they might have to prepare themselves for another one…
Last January the Gunners were heavily linked with a move to sign Vlahovic. They even had a bid accepted for the Serbian international, however he chose to stay in Italy and picked Turin over North London.
He ended up joining Juventus from Fiorentina in a deal worth £66 million.
🚨BREAKING: Arsenal have agreed terms with Fiorentina who are willing to sell their main striker for a sizeable fee to ensure Vlahovic’s agents are satisfied.
Vlahovic is impressed with offer of £160,000 a week & is now seriously considering a move to Arsenal.

Fabrizio Romano revealed last week that those negotiations left a bitter taste in the mouth of Mikel Arteta and Edu, who would not be returning for the 22-year-old this time around.
However the reports in Italy suggest otherwise…
According to La Repubblica, Arsenal are back in for Vlahovic, who is unhappy in Turin, however the Gunners would have to pay up around £90million if they want to sign the Serbian striker.
The report also claims that Arsenal are still keen on the player, but that a transfer wouldn’t materialise until the summer.
All Arsenal’s current focus is on Mykhailo Mudryk who is going to cost north of £60million. That would be a lot of money for Arsenal to cough up within six months, however with Juve in financial strife, selling their assets is likely going to be considered.
