Latest on potential Arthur and Vlahovic transfers 0

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.

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.

According to reports in Italy, Arsenal are lining up a January move for Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic.

The Serbian striker has been linked with the Gunners on a number of occasions before. With Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah moving slowly towards the exit door, the media across Europe are constantly speculating about whom the club could go for to boost their attacking ranks.

Transfers: Torreira, Willian 0

Arsenal have reached an agreement with Fiorentina about the proposed transfer of Lucas Torreira, according to multiple sources.

The 25-year-old joined the Gunners in 2018 from Sampdoria, and though he did play an important role in the team under Unai Emery, he never had a proper place in the plans of Mikel Arteta, even though his contract at the Emirates has two years left to run. He spent last season on loan at Atletico Madrid, and it seems another temporary move is now very close.

Fiorentina and Arsenal in advanced Torreira talks 0

Fiorentina and Arsenal are in advanced talks over a permanent transfer of Lucas Torreira this summer, according to reports in Italy.

The midfielder fell deep down the pecking order towards the end of last season under Mikel Arteta, and last summer he was sent on a season-long loan to Atletico Madrid. However, his fortunes obviously haven’t changed despite the change of scenery; he has so far had only three La Liga starts for Diego Simeone’s team, making eight more appearances off the bench. He has found the back of the opposition net once, in their 1-3 triumph away to Osasuna back on the final day of October.

Arsenal transfer rumours: Anderson, Sokratis, Torreira 0

The summer transfer window rambles on and Arsenal have so far been reasonably active in the market. They’ve secured the services of winger Willian from Chelsea on a free transfer and centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille for a reported fee of €30 million (£27m). That, however, doesn’t seem to be the end of the business this summer, if reports of further dealings are to be believed.

According to the Mirror, the Gunners are interested in signing West Ham United winger Felipe Anderson after they were offered the services of the Brazilian on a season-long loan for £5m. The 27-year-old arrived to the London Stadium from Lazio in 2018. Last season he made a total of 27 appearances for the Hammers, scoring once any laying on five assists.

Arsenal ease to victory against Fiorentina 0

Coming into this pre-season tour of the United States, it felt like there was a great deal of negativity at Arsenal Football Club. They just didn’t seem capable of catching a break, with the Kroenke issue being one of the primary reasons why. Alas, in the last few games over in the States, they’ve been able to distract fans from all of that noise with a series of impressive wins. Last night, that trend continued as they eased their way towards a 3-0 success over Serie A side Fiorentina.

Despite the distraction of the summer transfer window, Arsenal have been able to compose themselves pretty well on the pitch during their pre-season campaign in the United States. They’ve had two games up to this point against Colorado Rapids and Bayern Munich, which has resulted in two wins. The triumph over Colorado was pretty standard, as you’d expect in a Premier League vs MLS clash, whereas the Bayern win was a bit more hard fought – and, as a result, a little bit more satisfying.
