Sources on both sides have shot down links between Dusan Vlahovic and Arsenal ahead of the January transfer window.
Late last week, CalcioMercatoWeb.it reported that Arsenal were again interested in Dusan Vlahovic, along with his Juventus teammate Fabio Miretti. A proposed double deal for €115m would reportedly be “difficult for Juventus to refuse”.
Yet Fabrizio Romano suggests there’s little truth to the links in the first place. Romano writes that the stories on Vlahovic and Arsenal have been described as wide of the mark by sources on both sides.
Vlahovic is reportedly focused on Juventus, and Arsenal are happy with their options up front.
In an article for CaughtOffside, Romano added that there’s nothing going on between the two parties, not even contact. He describes a potential deal as extremely unlikely, and suggests Vlahovic isn’t being blamed for his team’s recent struggles.
Juventus are currently eighth in Serie A with just two wins in seven games, and they’re third in their Champions League group with zero points from two games.
Vlahovic has four goals in eight games, which isn’t too bad. Though it’s worth adding that he scored all four in the first four matches and is now on a four-game drought.
Vlahovic was heavily linked with Arsenal during his time at Fiorentina, and he seemingly had the choice between the Gunners and Juventus when he ended up leaving in January.
It’s somewhat inevitable that Juventus’ struggles and Arsenal’s strong form would lead to talk that he might now want to rethink that decision. But there doesn’t seem to be much substance to it right now.
