Arsenal checks a big box for Dusan Vlahovic as Mikel Arteta decides on Alexander Isak.
Arsenal’s top transfer target in the January transfer window is DUSAN VLAHOVIC.
According to reports, Arsenal can fulfill one of Dusan Vlahovic’s main requirements for his next club.
In this transfer window, Arsenal are attempting to sign the Fiorentina striker.
Three of Arsenal’s current forwards have serious doubts about their futures, so the club is on the lookout for replacements.
Vlahovic has been in outstanding form for Fiorentina this season, scoring 16 goals in 19 Serie A appearances.
In 2021, he matched Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of 33 goals in a calendar year in the Italian top flight.
As a result, his signing would be a major coup for Arsenal.
Vlahovic’s Fiorentina contract is up in 18 months, and he has turned down all renewal offers.
As a result, if he does not sign an extension by the summer, he will most likely be available for a lower price.
However, according to CBS Sports, Arsenal is eager to make a deal this window.
Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both out of contract in the summer, with the latter linked with a move away this month.
Following his highly publicized squabble with manager Mikel Arteta, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be allowed to leave.

Arsenal had made an offer for Vlahovic of around £46 million plus Lucas Torreira, according to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport earlier this week.
Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak is also a target for the north London club.
The Gunners’ preferred target, according to CBS Sports, is Vlahovic.
Juventus are expected to be a strong contender for Vlahovic’s signature.
Vlahovic will not sign with a team that does not provide regular European football.
Despite failing to qualify for Europe last season, Arsenal checks that box.
Arsenal hasn’t competed in European competition in 25 years.
Since 2017, Arsenal hasn’t competed in the Champions League.
With just under half of their games remaining, they are currently fourth in the Premier League table.
Krzysztof Piatek of Hertha Berlin is set to join Fiorentina on loan until the end of the season.
