Report: Arsenal will make £308,000-a-week contract offer to 21-year-old in next 48 hours

Arsenal appear to be working incredibly hard to try and sign Dusan Vlahovic this month.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with the Fiorentina star in recent weeks.

No surprise really. Vlahovic is one of the best and most highly sought-after youngsters in world football.

In addition, the Gunners will certainly need to snap up a new striker this year.

Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both out of contract in the summer.

But now, a report from La Nazione claims Arsenal are going all out to land Vlahovic in the January transfer window.

The Italian outlet claims the Gunners will make a £59m bid for the Serbia international in the next 48 hours.

And that’s not all – Arsenal are apparently ready to make Vlahovic a gargantuan contract offer.

The Gunners are reportedly planning to offer him €19m-a-year, or £16m-a-year.

In weekly terms, that would work out at about £308,000-a-week.

Staggering sums, but Vlahovic would certainly be worth it.

This season, the 6ft 3in ace has a staggering 20 goals and four assists from just 24 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.

Not bad for a player who’s still only 21.

“I have watched him a couple of times now,” Micah Richards told BBC Radio Five Live in December.

“He is lightning. It’s ridiculous. He has got 16 in 18 this season. His left foot is like a wand.

“I am telling you now, he is everything, he is everything you need.”
