Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic has been linked with a move to Arsenal, with the Bianconeri setting their asking price.

A report from Calciomercato.It has claimed that Juventus have set an asking price for Dusan Vlahovic. Arsenal are interested in signing the Serbian international and will have to pay €60 million to get the deal done.

Dusan Vlahovic at Juventus: The Story So Far

Vlahovic has had a mixed spell with Juventus, and he has not been able to hit the top form with them so far. He was regarded as a world-class prospect during his time at Fiorentina, but the transfer to the Allianz Stadium has not worked out for either party so far.

It appears that Juventus are prepared to cash in on him for a lucrative offer. But it remains to be seen whether Arsenal are prepared to pay up. They need to sign a reliable finisher in the coming months.

Arsenal in the Market for a Striker

Gabriel Jesus has done a reasonably good job since joining from Manchester City. But he is not a prolific goalscorer. The Brazilian international is more of a creative forward, meaning Arsenal need someone who can score goals consistently to lead the line alongside him. That is where Vlahovic comes into the picture.

The 23-year-old Serbian international would be the ideal acquisition for Arsenal. He has the physicality to thrive in English football as well. Mikel Arteta could help the 23-year-old develop further and fulfil his world class potential.

The Spanish manager has done well to bring out the best in young players during his time at the club. If he can get the best out of Vlahovic, Arsenal would have a top class striker on their hands for the foreseeable future.

While the €60 million asking price might seem like a premium right now, the 23-year-old certainly has the potential to justify the outlay in the coming seasons. The report further states that Arsenal could look to bring down the asking price by offering a player along with some cash.

Thomas Partey and Charlie Patino are reportedly on the radar of the Serie A club, and they could be used to lower the €60 million valuation of the Serbian striker. Player-plus-cash deals are often quite difficult to execute. But it remains to be seen whether the two clubs can workout an agreement in the coming months.
