Arsenal reportedly holds a strong interest in securing the services of Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic. According to a report from Calciomercato.It, the Italian club has established an asking price of €60 million for the 23-year-old, raising questions about whether the Gunners are willing to commit to such a significant sum for the Serbian international.
In an effort to potentially reduce the price tag, Arsenal are contemplating involving a player in the deal, with Juventus purportedly eyeing Thomas Partey and Charlie Patino. The possibility of a player-plus-cash arrangement between the two clubs for the striker remains an intriguing prospect.
The urgent need for a reliable goal scorer at Arsenal is no secret, particularly with the inconsistent goal-scoring form of players like Gabriel Jesus. While Dusan Vlahovic hasn’t hit his peak since joining Juventus, his reputation as a top-tier talent with immense potential was established during his tenure at Fiorentina.
A departure from Juventus might offer Vlahovic the chance to rediscover his form and confidence, with Arsenal’s attacking style potentially unleashing his full potential. Equipped with both physicality and technical prowess, he appears well-suited for English football, presenting an enticing opportunity with Arsenal.
As Arsenal fights for the Premier League title, strategic January signings could bolster their campaign. Vlahovic, if able to recapture his best form, would undoubtedly elevate their attacking prowess as a valuable, long-term addition.
The Gunners are still holding out for Ivan Toney with his situation becoming increasingly clear with Brentford manager Thomas Frank stating the club have no intention to sell the striker.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for the England striker this month, with the 28-year-old set to return to action in the coming weeks following his eight month ban for betting activities.
The Gunners have seen their title charge derailing early this season after the attack failed to click and score enough goals to sustain their lead at the top of the table. Currently fourth on the log, five points behind leaders Liverpool, the need for additional firepower is evident, leading to speculations surrounding Toney’s potential move to the Emirates.
Addressing the situation, Brentford manager, Frank, emphasised Toney’s loyalty to the club, stating, “Yes, he’s staying. He is a Brentford player. I can’t see why we would sell him, and I would love to have him for a longer time. It needs to be an unbelievable price. So he will stay here.”
