Arsenal make contact for Dusan Vlahovic to beat Tottenham
According to transfer news from Corriere dello Sport (h/t Express), Arsenal have made contact for Dusan Vlahovic ahead of Tottenham. The Fiorentina striker is in demand and there is interest from Inter Milan as well as both the London clubs. However, Arsenal are said to be in regular contact with the Serbian striker’s agent in order to move ahead in the race.
It’s not without reason that Dusan Vlahovic finds himself in demand from top clubs in Europe. Last season he went on to score 21 goals in the Serie A, finishing fourth-best on the goalscorers’ list. That is all the more impressive given Fiorentina languished in the bottom half of the table and struggled to produce much.
Fiorentina are keen to keep their star man and have even offered him a new contract. However, his entourage is still in talks with several clubs such as Tottenham, Arsenal, and Inter Milan.
Spurs are interested in Vlahovic if they cannot get a deal for Lautaro Martinez over the line. An agreement was reached for Martinez but a deal seems to have stalled after Lukaku agreed to move to Chelsea.
It looks as if the race for Vlahovic is heating up and Arsenal are trying to take a lead ahead of Spurs. The Gunners are said to be in contact with the Serbian striker’s agent Darko Ristic. Spurs are lagging behind because they have to sell players in order to spend. Fiorentina are said to be looking for a £51m offer for him.
