Watch: Vlahovic show Arsenal what they’re missing out on with debut goal

Dusan Vlahovic put in a strong performance on debut for Juventus, proving Arsenal right for putting so much effort into signing him.

The Old Lady were 2-0 victors thanks to two debut goals from their January signings Denis Zakaria and Vlahovic this evening, helping themselves lift into the top four of the table.

They didn’t have to wait long for their new striker to open his account, scoring inside just 13 minutes of action when he lobbed the Verona goalkeeper after Paulo Dybala had played him in behind the defence.

The striker looked dangerous throughout the clash, but was unable to double his tally against their strong opponents, but he will be happy to have opened his account at the first time of asking, with his goal also taking him joint-top of the Serie A charts also.

I definitely think we will rue missing out on the striker, and we now have to find an alternative who can help take us to the next level.

  1. 50mill Laca leaving on a free.
    60mill Auba. Paid to leave.
    72mill Pepe. Two and half wasted seasons.
    What madness is this?
    Surely we can’t go on like this?
    Arsenal’s goal scorers are midfielders Saka free, ESR free, Martinelli 7mill+ Odegaard 30 mill. Four goal scorers 37mill total price. What’s with the 60mill + striker obsession? Just to please fans who want a shiny expensive striker?
    90 mill Pogba 90 mill Maguire 73mill Sancho Cavani Ronaldo struggling to get 4th at United.
    90 mill Lukaku struggling at Chelsea.
    Man City does not have a 90 mill striker and are Champions elect already.
    Don’t pay any more than 25 mill for a striker the next 4 years. Better still loan strikers and try before buying. Buy teenage talent for 2-3 mill and also promote from the academy. We don’t buy stars we make them…apparently.

    1. Trust the process fanfair – at least I think that’s what you’ve been telling everyone.

      This was the player who refused to even talk about a move to our club, despite us chasing him for the whole transfer window.

      Meanwhile, Aubemeyang appears for Barcelona as they ALSO win and move into the top four and CL qualification.

      I do agree with you that it’s complete madness, but all our eggs are now in one basket regarding european football, so let’s just sit back, support the club and see what the rest of the season brings.

      1. Unfortunately Ken these are the type of players we can now only dream of signing .
        Be it because of uninspiring slow motion football or Arteta just not having the pull as top class managers do .
        The next lvl down players are what I see us going for in the summer .

  2. Ken, have to agree with you, we need a lethal forward irrespective of the costs, hence Mikel was bang on target with his assessment of Dusan. Nevertheless, he still has the next 3-4 months to spot the next Dusan. He wisely let go Isaak due to his over the hill fees as he is not on the level or better than Dusan at the moment. Summer looks exciting for once.

  3. I think the decision makers at arsenal are clueless, I will do a better with a quarter of what they are paid, I agree with u, they keep buying expensive wrong type of player, the scouting network need to be energised, there are plenty of vlahovics out there, I bet if arsenal had good scouts, they should have noticed him last yr

  4. There was this ICC pre-season match in the summer of 2019 between Arsenal and Fiorentina in which Vlahovic led their line. Guess what …. It ended 3-0 with Nketiah scoring a brace for Arsenal.

    Since then, Vlahovic has scored 50 goals in 99 competitive appearances. There is no getting around the fact that the guy is a beast and the fact that he scores all kinds of goals almost makes him the ultimate striker. He could probably handle himself in any team including Arsenal and like Locatelli in the previous window, Vlahovic just did not want to come. Lets leave it at that.

    There are just 8 points between Juve in 4th place and leaders Inter (who have a game in hand) with 14 games to go. Despite their disastrous start, Juve have made the inevitable climb up the table and Inter should be worried

  5. This guy Vlahovic was really on fire yesterday. What a big miss for our club.
    Well, it’s not about paying big or small money for a striker. It’s about performance and attitude.
    I hope the next striker fits into “the process” seamlessly.

  6. The guy is best suited for the Italian league and most Italians do not like the English weather. I still feel if he had accepted to come here, he could flop or the other way round.

    Arsenal did well not to add an average player to the squad, for me that is being ruthless and prudent. That is a risk I admire. Life itself is a risk win or loose.

    Not all expensive buys comes out good, dusan is not the end of the world for arsenal. Lacazette was once banging in goals at Lyon. Price tag alone can make some players flop.

    IMO Arteta is doing better than Brendan Rodgers and we all can see. Appreciate what you have and support.

    Love and light✌🏾

  7. How many more times? We didn’t miss out, we wasn’t out bid, we didn’t offer less money, we didn’t offer less wages. He always said he only wanted Juve, no one else.
