'We can't predict the future but...': Journalist makes Arsenal claim about 'outstanding' European talent

Top transfer guru and journalist, Fabrizio Romano, has been speaking about Arsenal’s chances of finally landing Juventus striker, Dusan Vlahovic.

Reports from Italy over this weekend had claimed that Arsenal were still keeping a close eye on things with Vlahovic, despite missing out on him in January of this year. The Serbian striker signed for Juve in a big-money deal, despite Edu and Mikel Arteta going all out to land the forward.

However, while those reports this weekend might have perked Arsenal fans’ interest a bit, Fabrizio Romano has been on hand to shoot things down before they even get motoring properly.

“At the moment there’s absolutely nothing between Dusan Vlahovic and Arsenal. We can’t predict the future but as of now there’s not even a direct contact,” Romano said for CaughtOffside.

“Vlahovic is key player for Juventus and they invested €75m plus add-ons for him, so it’s extremely unlikely. He was great last season with Juventus, this year all the players are not performing so I don’t think it’s Vlahovic’s fault that he’s not yet performed at his very best.”

So that appears to be that, then. Romano is usually in the know, especially with matters in Serie A. So for now, it feels like Gunners fans can put this one on the backburner.

TBR’s View: Vlahovic To Arsenal Seemed Odd Anyway

We said it at the time but for Juventus to look to sell Dusan Vlahovic just nine or so months into his time in Turin would have been a bizarre move indeed.

Vlahovic has done well in the main as Romano says and this seems to be a rumour born out of very little.

Of course, it’s not unlikely that Arsenal are keeping a close eye Vlahovic still, given how much they put into scouting him beforehand. But in terms of making an actual move in the market for him, well, that seems unlikely.
