BREAKING: Chelsea in line to sign £66m-rated Striker in January, who Arteta wanted to sign last summer.
Dusan Vlahovic, a longtime Arsenal target, is currently being courted by Chelsea.
During the summer transfer window, Arteta made some outstanding acquisitions, and he actually did buy players who elevated the Gunners team to the level of legitimate title contenders.
This season, they have been among the most exciting and engaging teams to watch in the Premier League, and as they continue to accumulate victories, there is a growing sense that Arteta is creating something special.
However, Arteta is aware that he will need to keep adding players to the team who will improve the team, and the Gunners continue to be interested in Vlahovic. According to the GiveMeSport website, Arteta has instructed the hierarchy to make a move for the 22-year-old.
Although they were eager to try and sign Vlahovic while he was still at Fiorentina, Juventus won the race after agreeing to pay £66 million. Vlahovic is one of the most talented strikers in the game.
But since moving to Turin, the teenage striker hasn’t exactly made an impact, and some reports in the Italian media have suggested that Juventus would be willing to let the player leave.
According to The Daily Mirror, Chelsea is really interested in the player and will try to make a move for him.
However, the source adds that any potential acquisition of Vlahovic will be extremely challenging since Juventus has no want to go with the £66 million man.
