It’s getting hotter on Wednesday afternoon in the ongoing January transfer window as more clubs are entering into the market to negotiate more signings.
Arsenal has made a new offer for Dusan Vlahovic around €70 million, which includes midfielder Lucas Torreira, which Fiorentina is considering.
Arsenal have made a new offer for striker Dusan Vlahovic, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, as they attempt to capture him in the January window. The Gunners have made a €70 million bid to the Serie A club, which includes midfielder Lucas Torreira. Fiorentina is considering the offer and may sanction a permanent transfer for their star striker.
There could be a lot of movement at Arsenal when it comes to their striker issue. The Gunners are dealing with a difficult situation that, if handled well, might result in the arrival of a new striker and the departure of a few others in January.
Folarin Balogun, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Eddie Nketiah could all be on their way out.
Mikel Arteta has removed Aubameyang from the team permanently, and he might be a target for Newcastle United this month. Meanwhile, the out-of-favor Balogun might join Middlesbrough on loan, a Championship possibility. Eddie Nketiah’s contract with the club expires at the end of the season, therefore a decision on him could be made.
Dusan Vlahovic of Fiorentina is their major goal, and the Gunners have made a few questions about him in the last month or so.
The north London club has made a new offer for the striker for €70 million. According to multiple sources, the transaction might include midfielder Lucas Torreira, who is valued at €15 million. Since his loan move to Florence, the Uruguayan has found his feet in Serie A, and the club is keen to make it permanent.
Arsenal is willing to provide €55 million in cash in addition to Torreira, bringing the total value of the deal to €70 million.
They’re thinking about accepting in the next few days.
According to reports from Italy, Vlahovic wants to continue the season with Fiorentina because he wants to win the top scorer award and assist the club finish in the European places. When the Serbian has only a year left on his contract, his financial value will be depleted, the Italian side may not get such a lucrative offer next summer.
Arteta would only have Alexandre Lacazette as a senior forward if those attackers named above go in the January window.
Furthermore, the Frenchman’s contract expires at the end of the current season, indicating that there will be a lot of striker activity next summer.
It’s no surprise that Arsenal has opted to move forward with its ambitions to get that top striker now rather than waiting until the summer. Fiorentina will have to decide whether to accept the existing offer or to push for more. Vlahovic, on the other hand, may have the final say. It remains to be seen whether he accepts Arsenal’s offer or waits for other offers before deciding on his next permanent move.
