During the forthcoming transfer window in January, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has expressed a strong desire to acquire the services of Dusan Vlahovic, a quality striker currently playing for Juventus.
In spite of the fact that the Gunners have had a respectable season up to this point, they suffered a defeat in their most recent match against West Ham United, which highlighted the fact that they require a more capable attacker. Vlahovic is someone that Arteta considers to be a possible solution to this problem.
Arsenal appears to be in a favorable situation, as they are currently ranked second in the Premier League after 18 games, and they are only one point behind Liverpool. In spite of this, their leading scorers, Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah, have only managed to score five goals between them this season. This is not an ideal situation for a squad that has intentions of winning the championship. Because Arteta is aware of this void, it has been rumored that he has his sights set on Vlahovic for the transfer window that will open in January.
It is expected that Vlahovic would depart Juventus the following month. Arsenal has been keeping an eye on him ever since before he was a member of the Italian club. Despite the fact that Juventus places a value of £52 million on the striker, rumors indicate that Arsenal is now willing to spend £34.7 million for purchase.
There is speculation that the negotiations might take an interesting turn once the transfer window opens in January, despite the fact that this discrepancy exists.
Even the top player for Paris Saint-Germain, Kylian Mbappe, who is usually considered to be among the finest players in the world, recognizes Vlahovic’s skill.
Mbappe has expressed his admiration for the Serbian star, stating that he is among the most outstanding players of his generation. Mbappe voiced his belief that Vlahovic will develop into a top player in the years to come in a statement that he released in September of the previous year. He stated that he is confident in Vlahovic’s ability.
