Report: Arsenal to rival Spurs for Dusan Vlahovic
Arsenal have Dusan Vlahovic on their radar with Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that they are alongside Spurs in leading the Premier League charge for the striker’s signature.
Vlahovic has established himself as one of the most exciting talents in Europe. He scored 21 goals in Serie A last season.
Unsurprisingly, Fiorentina are not interested in losing him on the cheap. And according to Di Marzio, the asking price starts at £51 million.
The report claims that that rules most of his admirers out of the running – except those in the Premier League.
And Di Marzio reports that it is Arsenal and Spurs who are showing interest in the Serbian.
Of course, the links with Tottenham will come as no surprise. Speculation persists concerning the future of Harry Kane. And they need at least one striker whether he stays or not.
Fabrizio Romano suggested this week that Spurs were speaking with his agents.
Arsenal meanwhile, were linked with Vlahovic earlier in the year. However, the links with the Gunners seem to be a little more out of the blue.
Huge statement if Arsenal beat Spurs to Dusan Vlahovic deal
There are question marks hanging over the futures of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah. But while the pair remain at the Emirates, it is hard to see Edu parting with over £50 million to sign another forward.
The priority for Arsenal is surely another number 10.
Having said that, a move for Vlahovic would be a seriously exciting statement of intent.
Mikel Arteta’s side have added a handful of extremely bright prospects to their ranks in this window.
Vlahovic would certainly be another. So it will be very interesting to see if Arsenal can act before they offload others – and perhaps, before Spurs can get a deal done themselves.
