Arsenal learn eye-catching price tag for Juventus striker

Juventus are willing to sell long-term Arsenal target Dusan Vlahovic this summer if the Gunners meet their €60m (£51.6m) valuation.

Arsenal have a long-standing interest in Vlahovic and were keen to sign the Serbian striker from Fiorentina before his move to Juventus in January 2022.

The north London side have made signing a centre-forward their lead focus for the summer and news of Vlahovic’s potential availability could lead to renewed interest from the Emirates.

 

Italian outlet Tuttosport are reporting that Juventus will consider offers of €60m (£51.6m) for Vlahovic, as the Bianconeri look to raise funds for their transfer business and lower the wage bill in Turin.

The 24-year-old is the highest-paid player at Juventus with a salary of around €12m per season and Juventus will allow Vlahovic to depart should their valuation be met.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side want to sign Albert Gudmundsson from divisional rivals Genoa, who is valued at around €30m and has also attracted interest from Tottenham, Newcastle and West Ham. Should Vlahovic leave, Juventus will also consider bids for Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee and Bayer Leverkusen striker Victor Boniface.

Vlahovic has scored 40 goals in 94 appearances since signing for Juventus and has enjoyed the best campaign of his career with the club this season. He has 16 league goals in 2023/24, with only Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez having scored more in Serie A.

Arsenal have been linked with a host of centre-forwards ahead of the summer window, including Viktor Gyokere, Benjamin Sesko and Victor Osimhen.

 

However, the availability of Vlahovic could lead the Gunners back in the direction of the 6ft 3in striker as Mikel Arteta seeks a long-term focal point for his team.
