Arsenal favourites to sign £63m-rated Serie A star - David Ornstein
Arsenal are reportedly front-runners to sign Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic during the ongoing transfer window.
The Serbia international had a terrific 2021 with the Florence outfit, bagging 33 goals in the Italian top-flight.
Despite the success, he has no plans of extending his contract expiring in June 2023, and could be sold this month.
According to The Athletic's David Ornstein, the Gunners are currently in a strong position to sign the 21-year-old.
The north London giants are best placed to meet the price tag and salary, compared to Juventus and Tottenham.
Vlahovic has the preference to join Juventus, but it is reported that anything could happen in the coming weeks.
The Gunners are braced for the potential exits of both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Eddie Nketiah this month.
Folarin Balogun is also expected to leave the club on loan. Middlesbrough have already agreed personal terms.
Alexandre Lacazette would be the only striker left in such a case. His contract also expires in six months.
Vlahovic, who is valued at £63m by Transfermarkt, has also been linked with Manchester City, but they prefer to sign Erling Haaland.
