Arsenal awaiting a response after tabling offer for coveted striker

Arsenal has been in pursuit of Dusan Vlahovic over the last few months.

The Gunners need new attackers, and they have made him their number one target.

However, he is not the only player on their wishlist with the likes of Ollie Watkins and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, also featuring on it.

But he has been in the better form among all of them and Arsenal would sign him over anyone else.

La Repubblica claims the Gunners have been in talks with Fiorentina over his transfer and they are prepared to offer a huge fee for his signature.

They have also offered him a five-year deal worth €10m per season and he is considering it.

The Gunners are now waiting for a reply from him in the next few days. If it doesn’t come, they will have no option but to move onto their other transfer targets.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Vlahovic would be a solid signing and he is probably worth waiting for, but we cannot spend the entire summer struggling to add him to our squad.

Arsenal is a big club, and some players would jump at the chance to play for us.

If Vlahovic doesn’t think we are good enough for him, then we have no reason to keep pushing.

  1. What we actually need to do:

    -Get Saliba back ASAP
    -Move Ben White to DM
    -Partey can then play B2B, his actual position
    -Laca/ESR/Saka/Ode/Martinelli to be used and rotated as needed
    -Bring Pepe back into the team, he is our most natural finisher now

    Then in June we can look at who we actually need to sign. MA and Edu obviously did no work in the closed season as we are yet to sign a 1st team player.

    1. There is no recall-back option in Saliba’s loan deal if am not wrong so stop your wishful thinking. Right now we just have to swallow whatever MA and the team throws at us until the end of the season and see where we finish.

    2. Saliba has no recall clause. Using White at DM is a good idea but for some reason, I don’t think MA will do that. Can’t really place my finger on it. I think he’s just like that. And I still cannot understand why Pepe has been completely frozen out. He’s our best goal threat and has proven that in the league. He’s not even given rotation minutes. Someone will say it’s because of the form of other players, but even when almighty Willian was around, it was the same. Anyway, let’s see how the whole thing goes

    1. Juve’s only hope of signing him is if the player pushes to go there because:
      1. Fiirentina is still angry with them over the manner in which they signed Chiesa
      2. Juve will likely offer a 2 year loan with an obligation to buy clause which will surely not suit Fiorentina unless they get desperate to sell. I therefore do not see Juventus as a competition for his signature

  2. I would be surprised if we sign him and more surprised if it was in Jan.
    He has several CL suitors. He is in strong position age-wise and contract length wise.
    January is a complicated market. Clubs won’t want to lose their key players mid season and players would feel uncertain about CL..etc.

    1. With that said, it is good we are trying in Jan. If the club accepts, we can talk to player/representatives to know if ge is willing to come or not, so that we won’t waste time in the summer.

  3. Last night showed Ben White is not the CB required, he was not worth the £50m spent & is bullied off the ball too easily. Strength, Height and Passing out from the back is what we need, he only ticks one of those boxes.

    He will end up playing 2nd fiddle to Saliba & Gabriel next season and cover for RB, CB or as some say on here DM.

    Go and buy Bissouma as Partey is back now and we can wait for him or Zakaria from gladbach. Add Vhalovic or another top striker once Auba makes his decision on where he’s going next along with Elneny.

    If we want top4 this season we need to take a chance and gamble here. Pepe has to come back into the fold once he returns as he has something and if Mikel can’t get these boys going but the can elsewhere then it’s obvious where the problem is.

    Martinz, Dino, Saliba, Matteo & Pepe are all feeling the wrath of Mikel who maybe needs to take a look in the mirror as he may have handled all these players wrong. Auba, Mesut, Mustafa & Papa all deserved to be moved on tbh.
