Arsenal can fulfil one of Dusan Vlahovic’s main requirements for his next club, according to reports. Arsenal are pushing to sign the Fiorentina striker in this transfer window. The Gunners have serious doubts over the future of three current forwards, so are looking to the market for replacements.
Vlahovic has been in stunning form in front of goal for Fiorentina again this season, scoring 16 goals in 19 Serie A appearances this term.
He equalled Cristiano Ronaldo’s all-time record of 33 for most goals in a calendar year in the Italian top flight in 2021.
So his signing would be some coup for the Gunners.
Vlahovic’s contract at Fiorentina is set to expire in 18 months’ time and he has rejected all offers of a renewal.
But they currently sit fourth in the Premier League table with just under half of their games remaining.
Fiorentina are set to sign Hertha Berlin striker Krzysztof Piatek on loan until the end of the season.
But the Poland international is not a direct replacement for Vlahovic.
Vlahovic recently stated he was happy to stay at Fiorentina for the remainder of the season but admitted things can change quickly.
He told Politika: “I have stated this several times so far. A beautiful football story is being made here in Florence.
“We have a good team, great football players, great support from the fans. It all deserves respect.
“Only God knows what will happen in the next period. My wish is to bring Fiorentina to Europe, because we have not been in Europe for a long time.
“I don’t know what can happen overnight. We’ll see.”
