Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

According to a recent report from Mirror, Arsenal have been handed a significant boost as Dusan Vlahovic would be open to a move to Arsenal now should Mikel Arteta reignite his interest in the forward. It is understood that the Juventus striker is struggling with form while the club struggles to perform in Serie A.

Vlahovic’s Campaign With Juventus So Far This Season

Vlahovic is having a brilliant campaign at Truin as he has put in some impressive displays in the attacking third of the field even though he struggled with injuries. However, the Italian giants have only continued to disappoint in the league table despite the Serbian striker performing at his best and banging in eleven goals and creating four assists over twenty-six appearances across all fronts.

The Belgrade-born sensation has been reliable in front of the goal and has performed consistently in the final third after averaging 3.1 shots, 1.0 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per game in Serie A. However, he will have to improve on his ball distribution as he has only completed 71.9% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

What Would He Bring To Arsenal?

Vlahovic’s playstyle is characterized by his ability to hold up the ball and bring his teammates into play. He is an excellent target man and is adept at winning aerial duels. His physicality also enables him to shield the ball effectively from defenders and create space for his teammates.

The 23-year-old could bring a physical presence up front at Emirates Stadium, something that the team has lacked in recent years even though they have fared well in the attacking front despite Gabriel Jesus’ absence. He would provide a focal point for Arsenal‘s attack and would be a threat in the air, which would add another dimension to their attacking play.

Dusan Vlahovic is a young striker with immense potential. His physicality, technical ability, movement off the ball, and finishing ability make him an excellent prospect for any team. However, the Serbia international will have to improve his link-up play if he wishes to become one of the best strikers in Europe.

He could certainly bring more competition in the number nine position and also add more firepower to the Gunners’ attacking department. Hence, Mikel Arteta should consider bringing him aboard after persuading the Italian side to let him exit for a cut-price fee.
