Vlahovic out of latest Fiorentina matchday squad, hours after club reportedly accepted Arsenal offer

The Dusan Vlahovic to Arsenal saga continues to rumble on, with just nine days left in the January transfer window.

Arsenal are one of several clubs reportedly hoping to sign the world-class Fiorentina striker.

Indeed, the Gunners appear to be one of the sides most eager to land Vlahovic immediately.

Today, a report from Tuttomercatoweb claimed Arsenal have tabled a 70m euro (£58million) offer for the 21-year-old.

And Fiorentina apparently accepted the Gunners’ offer.

Sadly, the report then claimed Vlahovic said no to the possibility of joining Arsenal.

This is despite the Gunners reportedly offering the Serbia international 10m euro a year (around £161,000-a-week).

Vlahovic apparently wants to see out the season before deciding on his long-term future.

However, Fiorentina have since named their matchday squad to face Cagliari on Sunday – and Vlahovic isn’t in it.

Fiorentina have not given a reason for his absence, but have said that two unnamed players have tested positive for covid.

There’s not long to go until transfer deadline day, and the Vlahovic / Arsenal saga looks set to rumble on right until the closure of the window.
