Arsenal’s chances of signing Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina in Italy’s Serie A this January transfer window, according to transfer insider Dean Jones, are slim.
If the North London club is interested, Dean Jones believes they will have their work cut out for them to sign the intriguing forward.
While the Gunners are interested in signing the Fiorentina striker this month, the journalist believes the player will make his decision next summer.
This means that if Mikel Arteta and Edu continue to press for his service, he could still be a Gunner in the coming months.
The Gunners are interested in the striker since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future at the Emirates Stadium is uncertain, and Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette have yet to agree to new contracts. In the summer, they could both leave.
Vlahovic has become a key target because he remains one of Europe’s most dangerous teenage strikers. This season, the 21-year-old has scored 19 goals in 22 games in all competitions, with 16 of those goals coming in Serie A.
“I’ve checked out Vlahovic’s current stance and he still seems poised to stay with Fiorentina and would prefer leave in the summer,” Dean Jones told GIVEMESPORT. If he leaves this month, Arsenal will have a lot of work to do.”
