Arsenal are set to make an enhanced push to sign in-demand Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic in the January transfer window according to reports, with transfer chief Edu set to lead the charge for his services.
Mikel Arteta’s men have had striking woes recently, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being stripped of his captaincy and being dropped from the first-team for repeated disciplinary issues.
Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah have done well coming in to replace the Gabon international, with the Frenchman leading the charge in the Premier League and Nketiah being the focal point in the EFL Cup.
However with both contracts running out in the summer, there is a burning need to bring in a replacement for the long-term as the Gunners’ three most senior strikers could be elsewhere by the start of the new season.
With that in mind, Arteta has set his sights on the Serbian after news became rife that Fiorentina would accept a bid of £65million.
And according to football.london, Arsenal director of football Edu is reportedly ‘doing everything possible’ to thrash out a deal by the end of the month.
