Romano tells Arsenal fans to forget about top striker target

All the Arsenal transfer rumours last January were focussed on the Gunners chasing the Serbian international hitman Dusan Vlahovic, especially as we knew we were likely to be losing Aubameyang to Barcelona.

But it was patently obvious that the 20 year old was only interested in going to Juventus and so it came to pass. But this season, Vlahovic has lost his scoring boots and the Old Lady have had a disastrous start to the season in Serie A, prompting rumours that Vlahovic may have made the wrong decision and he has been stronly linked with Arsenal again.

But the transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has now poured water on that idea and can see no possible reason why Juventus would let there big investment leave after just a year at the club, and there are no talks being considered with Arsenal now or in the future.

Romano told Caughtoffside: “At the moment there’s absolutely nothing between Dusan Vlahovic and Arsenal. We can’t predict the future but as of now there’s not even a direct contact,”

“Vlahovic is key player for Juventus and they invested €75m plus add-ons for him, so it’s extremely unlikely.

“He was great last season with Juventus, this year all the players are not performing so I don’t think it’s Vlahovic’s fault that he’s not yet performed at his very best.”

I am not surprised Juventus would hang on to him. He still has many years ahead of him to develop into the top striker they believe he is, and it would seem that Arteta believed he was the right man for Arsenal.

Mind you, I do think we still need one more striker at Arsenal, but it won’t be Vlahovic…

Tags Vlahovic


  1. Top player, but virtually a zero chance of us ever landing him, despite trying so hard, less than even a year ago.

  2. The way he reacted to us when we wanted him at critical moment I lost interest on him and I think Arsenal should not take any trouble following him. There are good strikers out there, pick from the winter world cup and move on!!

  3. It’s. Interesting to see a player on team they love. Vlahovic never loved to play for us so just it as it is wre not dying for him. We better move to the player they love and feel about to be the gunners

  4. Dusan Vlohovic would still make a lethal attack force to Arsenal style of play, dont think the gaffer would object to him jumping ship and joining us , but I can’t see this happening.

    Our priority is this number six position, January can’t come too soon.

  5. with the acute shortages of world class strikers in the world right now the old lady will continue to stake thier hope on him until he turns the corner, despite having GJ in our rank now, should we have allowed Giroud leave few years ago? I think not, always willing to warm the bench, superb aerial ability, sensational link up skills and on the verge of becoming France all time highest goal scorer, the people who made that call goofed seriously
