Arsenal wants to beat Tottenham to a player that can solve their goal-scoring problems

Arsenal’s search for a new striker has taken them to Italy where they are reportedly in the race for Dusan Vlahovic right now.

The 21-year-old emerged as a goal-scoring sensation for Fiorentina last season after plundering 21 league goals for the Florence club.

He has two more seasons left on his current contract with the Italian club and they want him on a new contract.

However, he is being targeted by Premier League clubs and Arsenal is the latest team to show an interest in his signature.

Gianluca Di Marzio, claims that Tottenham is keen to add him to their squad but will now face competition from the Gunners.

Fabio Paratici has been watching him since he was working at Juventus before this summer.

The new Tottenham football director wanted to sign him for the Old Lady and he now wants to take him to London.

Arsenal also needs a goalscorer and would not want their fierce rivals to win the race for his signature.

The report claims that signing him would be tough and whichever club is serious about winning the race for him will have to pay as much as €60million.

That fee might be too much for Arsenal to pay for him this summer.

    I’m starting to feel we may need a striker, someone preferably who can offer something different to our current options and I’m intrigued by Dusan Vlahovic who, standing at 6″3 is a good in the air and scored 21 goals last season in serie a, which is a good return in a league known for being difficult to score prolifically in. Now fiorentina want lucas torreira, so maybe we could offer 30m plus him to them.

    Arsenals interest in Dusan Vlahovic is very strong in fact a deal has already been struck.
    Skye Scotland is reporting that Lochness FC has bought Aubameyang+ Lacazette for a total of 270m.
    Arsenal are now expected to announce the signing of Messi Aouor and Dusan tomorrow. The new triumvirate known as MAD will be unveiled at the Emirates on Thursday and all three willl be available for Fridays clash with Brentford

      Fake news simulation right ?

        Watched a lot of Serie A over the past few seasons, this guy would rip it up in the premiership big, strong quite fast and mobile for a big striker and young, I would go all out for this player, has a real drive about him, something strongly missing at Arsenal with Auba and Laca. Martinelli, Saka plus this young Serb would be awesome.

    Hopefully Fiorentina will accept Torreira plus cash for as to seal the deal for Dusan Vlahovic. We need a number 10 and a striker to make as compete , Aubameyang and Laca have proved ineffective and relying on them will be suicidal.

      Truthfully, Arsenal as a team does not need a striker. The ones in the team are good but no creative midfield to pass the balls to the strikers. I watched closely how they were sending long balls to Chelsea eighteen and the defenders intercepted all the balls. Arteta and the Board should sign Maddison and Odeguard and let the strikers score goals. My candid opinion. No

  4. Oldman-58 says:

    A good striker would be fantastic, but I would have to say that our issues seem to be getting the ball to our strikers fast enough.

    Our strikers sit very deep with our current tactics. When we do get the ball to them we’ve allowed the opposition to drop deep already.

      Perfect analysis. This is the exact diagnosis of Arteta syndrome

    2. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

      Nice analysis Gary, spot on…btw I loved your work in Romeo is Bleeding

  5. Bulave Jonathan says:

    speculation is not can not be the right thing now. Arsenal had a very poor performance last season. Arteta should in there and do the needful. we need a creative midfielder and a good goal keeper.

  6. JW says:

    Wrong again!!!

    We need a defensive midfielder and a “recognized” goal-scorer.

    We can live with Leno for another year, and by using our pace up front (Pepe, Auba and Saka) we just need someone to put the ball in the net (NOT Abrahams).

    If we finish in one of the Europa League spots at the end of this season, then we can think about getting a top class creative midfielder, and perhaps a better goal keeper!!!

  7. A J says:

    Probably end up with Matthew Hoppe from Schalke circa 6M.

  8. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

    This young striker possesses a very intriguing set of skills and considering his movement off the ball, he appears to have an advanced level footballing IQ…he’s been the only really watchable element in that squad since they went all GQ and signed Ribery…I would be elated if we had the fortitude and gumption to sell off both Eddie, which could be difficult in light of his recent knock, and Laca, who simply can’t be re-signed or allowed to go on a free, and brought in this young prospect with an incredible upside

  9. gunnerforlife says:

    This guy is terrific if he has scored 21 goals in a league known best for its defensive strengths. We can use Torreira in a swop deal to get him. We should get him and a creative midfielder and Arsenal’s goal scoring problems are covered.
