Arsenal move for €50m Serie A attacker already in the works

Arsenal move for €50m Serie A attacker already in the works

Arsenal is expected to renew their pursuit of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic this summer, after failing to sign him a few years ago.

This season, the 21-year-old has made a name for himself with his performances for Fiorentina. Despite La Viola's 13th-place finish in the Italian top flight this season, 

the Serbia international has scored 21 league goals. They have 34 appearances and 31 starts under their belt, and it seems that many European clubs are interested.


                Despite Roma allegedly showing an interest in signing him, the Gunners emerged as the frontrunners for his signature in March. However, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Manchester City have all been linked since then.

                With so many big-name suitors circling, it seems that Fiorentina will cash in on the youngster this summer. The north Londoners are expected to make an offer.


                However, according to Corriere Fiorentino (via Sport Witness), they may have caught him in 2017. The Emirates club first expressed interest in him when he was on the books at Partizan Belgrade.

                Fiorentina, on the other hand, won the race and paid €1.5 million to bring him to Stadio Artemio Franchi. That now appears to be a steal, given that a fee of €50 million is thought to be expected to close the deal.

                Only time will say if Arsenal is willing to pay that much, but he seems to be an interesting prospect.

                Arsenal is expected to sign some new players this summer after a disappointing season by their standards. With just 49 Premier League goals scored so far this season, the Spanish tactician requires support upfront.

                At the moment, his favorite strikers are Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. In 2020-21, Aubameyang has 10 goals in 26 games, while Lacazette has 13 in 29.

                And it is clear that they have suffered in the absence of the pair. Lacazette's future at Arsenal is uncertain, as he has been linked with a move away from the club.


                Vlahovic may be the man to take his place, but other clubs are also interested. Back in March, AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur were listed in connection with the player.

                West Ham and Newcastle have also been linked, and the youngster appears to have a busy summer ahead of him. Fiorentina does not want to sell their precious asset, but the prospect of a large transfer fee could sway them.
