Arsenal have reportedly been asked to pay a fee of around £8m to secure the services of Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic in the winter transfer window.

The Gunners' higher officials are understood to have held talks with Juve manager Beppe Marotta over the sale of the Montenegrin international in the current transfer window.

Reports earlier had suggested that Premier League rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur were vying for the player's signature on a temporary basis, but The Mirror reports that the Turin club are not interested in a short-term deal, and want to cash in on the player in January.

Vucinic has failed to cement his place in the first-team this season, following the arrivals of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente in the summer.
