Arsenal blow as striker confirms he will remain at his current club

Arsenal has been handed a blow in their bid to add Dusan Vlahovic to their squad this summer after the Serbian striker confirmed he is not leaving Fiorentina.

He burst onto the scene last season when he scored 21 Serie A goals for the Florence club.

He caught the attention of top European clubs including Juventus, Tottenham and Atletico Madrid.

Arsenal has several strikers in their squad at the moment, but most of them are underperforming and the Gunners are on the lookout for reinforcements.

They would love to add Vlahovic to their squad, but that will not happen this summer with just a few hours left before the transfer window closes.

The striker spoke about his future recently and he admitted that he had received offers from several clubs around Europe before confirming that he isn’t leaving Fiorentina in this transfer window, regardless.

He told Sky Sport as quoted by Sun Sports: “I’ve received top proposals this summer, really big also for the club.

“But I was never pushing to leave. I wanted to stay at Fiorentina … and I’m staying, yes.”

Mikel Arteta will now have to work with his current underperforming attacking options and the Spaniard will hope that they score enough goals to help them achieve their seasonal objectives.

  1. Where’s the reaction to the deadline day dealings! You all gone to bed or what? So quiet in here 🥱

  2. Glasgow Celtic may have picked up the CF bargain of the season, buying Georgios Giakoumakis from relegated VVV-Venlo. The 26 yo Greek international signed for £2.5 million and was the top scorer with 26 goals in 30 games in the Eredivisie, despite his team being relegated.
    £2.5 million for a player of this quality, who scores with both feet and head, as well as being an accomplished penalty taker! Not even on Arsenal’s radar, as far as we know.

    1. The price would have been £20mil if it were arsenal.
      Our fans internet /social media power could make an unknown person because popular is an hour

  3. The attackers aren’t under performing, the manager is. Willian literally gave up millions just leave the club.

    Fact is MA lives in a fantasy world where everything he does is tactically fabulous, seems everyone keeps encouraging him that he’s doing so well. The exact same way a young kid that’s really bad at sport is encouraged.
