Inside Europe – Why Dusan Vlahovic could be “one of Arsenal’s best signings of recent years”

It’s the January transfer window – a time for clubs that need a punch to score goals to make envious glances in the direction of some of the best and brightest center-forwards the world has to offer. football has to offer.

Among the most coveted of them is Dusan Vlahovic, the Serbian striker sensation from Fiorentina who has caught the attention of many of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Then there’s Arsenal, who need a long-term strike option with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang now effectively in exile after Mikel Arteta has had enough of repeated disciplinary breaches.

With the Gabon international likely on the verge of leaving the club, Arsenal could perhaps have the kind of capital needed to tempt Fiorentina in a deal – indeed, The Athletic have claimed the London club are now “in the best position. “to get Vlahovic’s signature.

But how good is the 21-year-old? And Arsenal, with no European football to offer, does he have a realistic chance of securing him? We asked Stefano Silvestri from Eurosport Italy for all the details …

What makes Vlahovic so special? Is it as good as everyone says it is?

Vlahovic is currently one of the best strikers in Europe. He is young (21) and bright – he has scored 21 goals last season and 16 so far. He wants to score and win every game. I would say £ 60-65million is about the right price for him.

Why would he go to Arsenal, given he could possibly join a Champions League side?

Vlahovic had already turned down Arsenal’s offer in November and it’s hard to see him change his mind. Arsenal will have to be persevering, and offer a substantial salary, to convince him.

How likely is he to leave in January – and where could he go? Are you surprised at his interest in him?

As mentioned, he is one of the best strikers in Europe. His contract ends in June 2023 and he has already refused to renew it, so he is expected to move in January or summer.

Fiorentina would like to keep him until the end of the season, even though they have finalized the signing of the deal with Krzysztof Piatek, but with a huge offer they could let him go. Juventus are another team that are said to be interested in Vlahovic, but Mauro Icardi are now their first choice. So Premier League money could make the difference.

How good could he be?

He has the quality and the personality to make a big impact in the Premier League. His arrival would be one of Arsenal’s best signings in recent years.
