Arsenal transfer target Dusan Vlahovic has told the Gunners that he is not interested in a move to the Emirates, according to reports.

Vlahovic scored 21 goals for Fiorentina in Serie A last season, before adding a further 12 goals in 14 games in all competitions so far this term.

Fiorentina have already confirmed that the 21-year-old will not be signing a contract extension on his current deal which expires in 2023.

This revelation means that the Viola will have to either sell in January or next summer if they are to get a fee for their star player, and are reportedly ready to listen to offers in the region of £59.5m.

Arsenal are very keen on signing Vlahovic and made an approach to his Fiorentina two weeks ago. 

But according to Fabrizio Romano, the Serbia international will not be moving to Arsenal and has stopped taking calls from the north London club.

‘Arsenal are more than interested, they approached Fiorentina two weeks ago about the price and everything but the player is not interested,’ he said on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE.

‘I’m told that his agents are not answering Arsenal’s calls. 

‘He doesn’t want to answer to Arsenal at the moment.’

North London rivals Tottenham, Manchester City and Bayern Munich are just three of many other clubs interested in signing Vlahovic, with the race for his signature still very much on.
