Journalist claims Arsenal willing to pay 'premium' to land 18-goal powerhouse

Arsenal are reportedly willing to pay a “premium” to land Dusan Vlahovic and are confident of signing him.

This is according to GiveMeSport transfer insider Dean Jones.

Arsenal have been linked with the Fiorentina striker for a number of months.

As well as the Gunners, the likes of Tottenham and Newcastle are apparently eyeing Vlahovic too.

It’s no surprise really – the 21-year-old is one of the best and most sought-after strikers in Europe.

Vlahovic joined Fiorentina in 2018 from Partizan Belgrade and has developed into a lethal striker.

This season, Vlahovic has a staggering 18 goals and three assists from 21 Viola games.

Last term, the Serbia international netted 21 times from 37 appearances.

In addition, Vlahovic has seven goals from 14 appearances for his country.

The 6ft 3in powerhouse won’t come cheap – his club reportedly wants £85million for him.

Jones didn’t say exactly how much Arsenal would be willing to pay for Vlahovic.

However, he claims they’re prepared to pay a premium to sign him in the January transfer window.

“Arsenal are turning up their interest in Vlahovic,” Jones wrote on GiveMeSport. “This is so interesting now.

“I’m told they really think they can get him if they pay a premium – and they are willing to do that.”

Arsenal certainly need to bring in new strikers in 2022.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is out of favour and Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are out of contract in summer.
