Report: Arsenal staff were left annoyed by 22-year-old striker after move to sign him was made

A report by The Express has claimed that Arsenal were left annoyed by Dusan Vlahovic when they tried to sign him last January. The striker eventually signed for Juventus from Fiorentina for £66 million.

It’s claimed now that Arsenal won’t be back in the running for Vlahovic. They’re so disappointed with the player and his representatives from the last time they were interested, they won’t go back in for him.

Vlahovic has made a steady start to life at Juventus. He’s scored 16 goals from 35 appearances and has also helped himself to four assists.

Some reports have claimed that he might be willing to leave Juventus. Given what happened last time, however, the Gunners won’t be throwing their hat into the ring for his signature.

It’s thought that Arsenal had a major gripe with the player’s representatives. The club were disgruntled that the Gunners were overlooked as a realistic destination for their client when he left Fiorentina.

It may have bitten Vlahovic too. Arsenal look to have got it right this season and could make a fist of winning the title. They currently occupy top spot in the Premier League and have a five-point cushion on Manchester City.

It’s perhaps for the best that Arsenal are taking a stubborn approach with the Serbia striker. If Juventus do allow him to leave, they will surely demand a fortune for the player they signed 11 months ago.

Vlahovic is a decent player and it’d be harsh to suggest otherwise. The 22-year-old has bags of potential and on his day he’s one of the best centre-forwards currently playing in the modern game.

Arsenal have made their bed though and they should be lauded for that. Vlahovic didn’t want to sign for Arsenal when they were desperate to land him so why should they put out when he’s the one keen to go elsewhere?

Mikel Arteta and Edu got plenty right during he summer transfer window. By ignoring any flirtatious glances from Vlahovic in January, they’d probably make another sound decision in the transfer market too.
