In a recent report, Tuttomercatoweb mentioned that Arsenal remain keen admirers of Juventus forward Dusan Vlahovic this summer. It has been claimed that the Gunners are eyeing a move to secure the services of the Serbian talent next year.
Vlahovic’s Impressive Start To This Serie A Season
Vlahovic has made a decent start to this campaign after producing some impressive displays as the focal point of Juventus’ attack recently. The 23-year-old has found the back of the net twice and earned one assist in three matches for the Turin outfit this season in Serie A.
The Serbian sensation has led the line well for Juve based on his average of 3.0 shots and 0.7 key passes per 90 minutes in Serie A football. However, he has to find a way to improve his ball distribution after making only 66.7% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at the Turin club will run out in the summer of 2026. Hence, the Gunners will have to make a convincing offer if they want to recruit Vlahovic next year.
Is Vlahovic A Decent Choice For Arsenal Head Coach Mikel Arteta?
Vlahovic excels at finding a yard of space for himself inside the opponent’s penalty box to get a few strikes in at goal. He can be a decent finisher in the final third and has got the vision to create some meaningful openings for his teammates in front of the opposition goal.
The Serbian talent could be in line to have a great season at Juventus. Hence, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will do well to lure him away to England next year.
We can expect Vlahovic to bring more firepower to the North London club‘s frontline. He is more than capable of competing with Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah for a regular starting spot at the Emirates Stadium next season.
At 23, the Serbia international has the potential to become one of the best players in his position soon. With all things considered, Vlahovic would be an excellent choice for the Gunners to pursue this winter or at the end of this campaign. However, only time will tell whether he can make a smooth transition to life in Premier League football.
