Arsenal suffer further transfer setbacks 0

Arsenal’s attempts to reinforce their ranks this summer certainly cannot be said to be going the right way up to this point. Desperately needing a striker, the club reportedly held a strong interest in Dusan Vlahovic, but the Serbia international seems to have chosen Juventus as his destination, following Fiorentina’s decision to accept a €75 million bid from the Old Lady.

As for the midfield section, the need to add some proper cover or competition for the duo of Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka is obvious, and the club were said to be involved in talks with Juventus over Arthur Melo, and to have expressed an interest in Olympique Lyon’s Bruno Guimaraes.

Arsenal have been credited with strong interest in signing Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina this month, but it seems the Gunners are now set to fail in their pursuit, with Juventus close to reaching an agreement to acquire his services.

Some reports in Italy even went as far as to claim that Arsenal had a bid of €80 million accepted by Fiorentina, but they also said Vlahovic himself was not keen to leave his current side halfway through the season when they’re fighting to finish in the top six.

Arsenal continue to put strong effort into signing both Arthur Melo on loan from Juventus and Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina on a permanent deal, according to numerous sources. However, neither deal represents straightforward business, and various complications are the reason why neither has made the switch yet.

The Gunners want Arthur on a straight loan for the rest of the season and nothing more. On the other hand, Juventus are only prepared to let the midfielder go if they secure a proper replacement (they’ve been linked with Borussia Monchengladbach’s Denis Zakaria), as head coach Massimiliano Allegri feels he needs a reliable midfielder outside his regular starting XI.

Arsenal are trying hard to work out a deal to sign Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina this month, but according to Miguel Delaney of the Independent, the Serie A side are demanding £75 million for the services of the Serbian striker. Arsenal are proposing a structured deal, but Fiorentina aren’t interested in anything else than the full fee being paid straight up.

One of the most sought-after players currently in the market, the Serbia international has 16 Serie A goals in just 20 appearances this term, numbers identical to Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah who tops the Premier League goalscoring chart at the moment.

Folarin Balogun has joined Middlesbrough on loan for the rest of the season, the club have officially confirmed.

The future of the 20-year-old striker was quite uncertain for a large part of 2020-21, but towards the end of the season he signed a new contract. Balogun could well be given a proper chance in the first-team squad next term, with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah set to depart and the fate of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang yet to be decided.

Balogun has truly impressed for the Under-23 side this season, scoring 15 goals in 14 appearances across the Premier League 2 and the EFL Trophy.

Arsenal still want Vlahovic 0

Arsenal are still interested in signing Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina this month, according to Sky Sports, and they would be willing to push for a deal if it proves financially viable, despite the Serbian striker looking likely to remain in Florence for the rest of the season.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has admitted recently his squad is looking rather thin in the striker department, which is quite obvious, really. With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang currently at the African Cup of Nations and his status at the club still to be decided on later, and with the contracts of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah approaching their mutual expiration date at the end of the season, the horizon will continue to look very dark unless new signings are made soon.

According to Sky in Italy, Arsenal have opened talks with Fiorentina about a potential move for Dusan Vlahovic, but as things stand at the moment, the Serbian striker is not interested in joining the Gunners. Juventus are interested as well, but that deal seems even less likely, with the Old Lady unwilling to meet Fiorentina’s asking price, or the commission Vlahovic’s representatives are asking for.
