In a recent report, TuttoJuve claimed that Arsenal are eyeing a January move for Juventus forward Dusan Vlahovic. It has been stated that the Gunners are hoping to land the Serbian striker in the upcoming winter transfer window.
Vlahovic’s Impressive Record At The Allianz Stadium
Vlahovic is having a productive campaign at the Turin club after putting in a few fruitful displays as the focal of their attack. The Serbian sensation has found the back of the net on four occasions and earned one assist in seven matches for Juve this season across all fronts.
The 23-year-old has led the line well at times and deserves some credit for averaging 3.0 shots, 0.4 key passes and 0.3 dribbles per game in Serie A. However, he has been a bit inaccurate when distributing the ball in the opponent’s half based on his pass completion rate of 71.6% in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).
His current deal at the Allianz Stadium will expire in the summer of 2026. Hence, the Gunners will have to make a convincing offer if they want to recruit Vlahovic this January.
Is Vlahovic The Right Choice For Arsenal Boss Mikel Arteta?
Vlahovic can create a yard of space for himself to get a few strikes in on-target. He can even set up the odd chance for his teammates on the offensive end of the field.
The Serbian striker can be a streaky goal-scorer up top but needs to find a way to improve his link-up play in the opposition half. He has got a wealth of experience at the highest level and could be a real asset in Mikel Arteta‘s squad at Arsenal.
Vlahovic would add some much-needed firepower to the North London club‘s attack. He has what it takes to rival Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah for a regular starting spot at the Emirates Stadium in the coming years.
Vlahovic will no doubt be an excellent choice for the Gunners to consider next summer as long as they can get him on board for a fair price next year. However, it remains to be seen whether the Serbian can cope with the physical side and high intensity of Premier League football.
