Joe Barone has confirmed that Fiorentina are open to discussing an exit for Dusan Vlahovic, but that Arsenal nor any other club have tabled an offer as of yet.
The Gunners have been strongly linked with the Serbian striker, as well as multiple other options, but some have been led to believe that Dusan is near the top of our wishlist as we look to strengthen our frontline.
If we are looking into a deal for his signature however, we appear to have failed to table an official offer at present, but the CEO of La Viola certainly appears to be opening the door to such a move.

With news that Aubameyang now has a heart condition, as reasoning for him missing the match with Gabon this evening, there is an increased need to add a striker to our ranks this month, and I would personally love to see us show real ambition by beating our rivals to land him this month.
He is top of my personal wishlist to lead the line for us, and our urgency to bring in a striker seriously needs addressing sooner rather than later…
Every club in the country has a permanent “serious need” to bring in a striker all season. Yet every club already has 3-4 multi million pound strikers. Arsenal has 50m Lacazette 60 mill Aubameyang 72mill Pepe plus martinelli Saka and ESR are scoring goals. But fans claim we are “desperate” for strikers. Chelsea has Lukaku 90 mill Ziyech 36mill Werner 47mill Pulisic 55m Havertz 72mill Abraham on loan yet are “short” on goal scorers. Man U Have Ronaldo Cavani Martial Greenwood Rashford Sancho but are “struggling” for strikers. If the NLD is postponed then we only have Burnley in the league at home before all our Afcon players return and time for others to recover so we do not “need” any more players at all. It’s just silly talk. But fun 🙂
Its about CF. You cant play martinelli, esr, saka at CF. Laca and auba is pure CF. I dont consider Nketiah as a football plauer let alone CF. So, auba is gone, laca will be gone next summer. That leaves only laca as CF for this 6 month. And 0 CF next summer. Hence the desperation
There has been lots of noise about all the players Arsenal are after in the January window.
Much of the noise has surrounded Vlahović!
Sadly I think this is just that, lots of noise, with no substance.
There has also been talk of a plethora of midfield players we are interested in. Again I think the vast majority of those players are again, just noise.
I fear we will end with either NO new player in the January window (at least not a young top class forward or a young top class midfielder)
My final resting place for Arsenal at the end of the season is still a Europa League spot, and I do not see any thing happening in the January window to change that expectation.
If we did bring in two top class players that pushed us into the top 4, surely they would pay for themselves in over next two seasons.
Some of the other players we have been linked with recently appear to be “Friends of Edu” again.
I thought we had put that all behind us.
Vlahovic is a special talent. Strong, lethal left foot with fantastic close control. I font think Arsenal can afford him
Lol..we paid 50M for Ben White and were willing to pay 70M for Maddison. 70M for Vlahovic is good value.
I like Dusan in arsenal
Apparently Edu has submitted a formal bid for Dusan now !
We need Dusan!
A CF is needed but IMO, we need a midfielder first , one like Wijnaldum, Sarabia ,
Midfield is where games are won.
