Report: Arsenal have strongest chance of any side to sign 21-year-old who's already worth 'more than £100m'

Arsenal are the best placed Premier League side ahead of Tottenham and Newcastle when it comes to the race to sign Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina this month.

The Serbian striker is one of the hottest properties in Europe. Arsenal, Tottenham, Newcastle, Manchester City and Italian side Juventus, are all known to have watched the goal-getter. However, according to The Athletic, it is the Gunners who are best placed in England to land Vlahovic.

The Athletic reports how Arsenal are in the ‘strongest’ position to sign him. It is believed the Gunners are well placed in terms of both offering the right fee and salary. Further, it’s added that Lucas Torreira could also be an ace up the sleeve for Edu and Mikel Arteta.

Vlahovic’s form has been outstanding yet again this season. He’s already hit 18 in just 22 games. But with his contract expiring in 2023 and no new deal being agreed, Fiorentina are now in a tricky position. The Viola could ask for more than £70m, but will also be aware that might be unrealistic with 18 months left on his deal. However, Vlahovic has been tipped to be worth more than £100m, so this is a special forward.

It’s worth noting, however, that Juventus are reportedly Vlahovic’s preferred destination. But should a move to England prevail, then it would appear Arsenal are top of the pops.

TBR’s View: Could Arsenal Really Get Vlahovic? Kudos To Edu If They Do

This is one of the longest sagas so far in 2021 and into 2022 but if Arsenal really can get Vlahovic, then what a piece of business it will be.

The Serbian is quite simply one of the best in Europe at the moment. Of course, we all know things can change and that over a long period of time, he hasn’t proven it. But in terms of form and the last two seasons, Vlahovic has flown.

If Arsenal pull off a deal for Dusan Vlahovic, then Gunners fans may actually start to believe something special is brewing.
