Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has hinted the club are ready to make a move for Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic. Arsenal are reportedly leading the way in the race to sign Vlahovic if he were to leave Fiorentina this month. And Arteta has not ruled out major signings in this window.
Vlahovic has scored 16 goals in 19 Serie A appearances so far this season to back up his fine campaign in front of goal last term.
The Serbia star equalled Cristiano Ronaldo’s Italian top-flight record of 33 goals in a calendar year in 2021.
Arsenal will soon be in need of at least one striker, with Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Eddie Nketiah all seeing their futures at the Emirates in doubt.
The Athletic reports Arsenal are pushing to sign Vlahovic in this window, not the summer.
“We want to play and that is how we are approaching every game,” Arteta said.
“We are really short with numbers, really, really short. We have some issues, but we will know more tomorrow.
“We want to do everything to play the game and don’t expect anything different than to play on Sunday.
“We wanted to play the (Liverpool) match, but you have to understand that clubs are having a lot of issues. We wanted to play.”
