Arsenal and Tottenham set to miss out on top target Dusan Vlahovic as Juventus ‘ready a £50m offer for the forward’ with Fiorentina ‘prepared to bid farewell for the striker this week’
- Arsenal and Tottenham have both been linked with trying to sign Dusan Vlahovic
- However, the Fiorentina striker looks set to join Juventus this month instead
- Juventus are prepared to pay £50m, and Fiorentina are ready to let Vlahovic go
Juventus are reportedly edging nearer to signing in-demand Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic this month.
The 21-year-old has been in exceptional form this season, scoring 20 goals across all competitions to establish himself as one of the brightest talents in Europe.
His goalscoring exploits have seen him heavily linked with a move to the Premier League following interest from Arsenal and Tottenham.
Dusan Vlahovic looks set to snub Arsenal and Tottenham in order to sign for Juventus
This would be a major coup for Massimiliano Allegri’s side who’ve struggled in Serie A this term
However, the two north London clubs look set to be left disappointed as Juventus are readying an offer of £50m (€60m), and Fiorentina are prepared to allow Vlahovic to leave this week, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side have managed to sign Federico Bernardeschi and Federico Chiesa from Fiorentina in recent seasons, and it seems that Vlahovic could follow them to the Allianz Stadium soon.
This news will come as a major blow to Arsenal, who have been desperately short of goals in January.
This is more bad news for Mikel Arteta after a tough month at the Emirates for the Spaniard
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte is also likely to be disappointed with missing out on Vlahovic
The Gunners have failed to score in four of their five matches this month, and have been knocked out of both domestic cup competitions.
They also have three strikers with uncertain futures as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been frozen out by Mikel Arteta in recent weeks, while Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are out of contract in the summer.
Meanwhile, Tottenham may now have look elsewhere if they want to bring in another forward in the final week of the transfer window.
It is understood that Antonio Conte wants to add a striker to his squad to support Harry Kane, but tempting Vlahovic to the club is looking increasingly unlikely.
