Fabrizio Romano says Arsenal won't sign Dusan Vlahovic this summer

According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal will not be among the clubs to make a move for Fiorentina starlet, Dusan Vlahovic. 

The Serbian striker has been super impressive for the Serie A club this season. Vlahovic, 21, has rattled in 21 goals and has seen his stock rise on the European market ahead of the summer window.

A number of clubs are said to be keen on Vlahovic. Corriere Fiorentino said back in April that Spurs were in the mix for Vlahovic, while Romano has also confirmed other teams are keen.

However, it looks like Arsenal won’t be one of those teams, with Romano offering a fresh update on Vlahovic via his Twitter account just a few hours ago.

Vlahovic is one of the top young strikers in Europe at the moment and has drawn comparisons to some of the very best in the business already.

Indeed, former Italy striker Christian Vieri branded Vlahovic as a top talent, saying he sat close to the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Erlin Haaland in terms of his ability.

Vlahovic would be a nice to have for Arsenal but you get the impression other positions are more important for the Gunners this summer.

The midfield needs addressing, as does right back and centre-half. That means Mikel Arteta needs to focus his attentions on those areas, and then sort the attack out later.

Given they have Lacazette, Aubameyang, and Nketiah, as well as Folarin Balogun, it looks a smart move for the Gunners to avoid Vlahovic for now.
