Mikel Arteta says Arsenal are ‘open’ to making a big move in the winter transfer market this month. And the Arsenal manager’s comments come amid ongoing links to striker Dusan Vlahovic, who Fiorentina value at approximately £60 million. Among news of other potential football transfers, will Arsenal buy Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina?
Vlahovic has scored 18 goals in 22 games this season.
At the same time, reports in Italy have claimed the Gunners are keen to lure him to North London. They might even be willing to include Lucas Torreira, who is currently on loan at Fiorentina, as part of the deal.
Football Transfers – Will Arsenal Buy Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina?
Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta spoke about the January transfer window and the Gunners’ plan for it.
On the prospect of completing a large deal for a player such Vlahovic, Arteta said: “I think with the amount of things and the way that we want to evolve the squad we have to maximise every window in many different ways and we are alert.
“Edu and his team are working very hard as we know exactly what we need to do.
“Whether we can accomplish that in January or in the summer is a different question as it is related to other stuff.
“Again, if it is the right player and we can afford it and we can do what we want to do we will discuss it and make the best possible decision.
“We are open.”
