Arsenal suffer huge transfer blow as Juventus 'agree £63m Dusan Vlahovic deal with Fiorentina' with striker keen on move

JUVENTUS are set to sign Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic in a huge transfer blow to Arsenal, according to reports.

Vlahovic is Arsenal's top transfer target but he looks poised to stay in Serie A.

Juventus have had a £63million bid accepted by Fiorentina and are now just finalising terms with Vlahovic, according to Sky in Italy and transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

So Arsenal look set to miss out on a key transfer target to Juventus – and not for the first time this season.

Last summer Mikel Arteta was keen on signing Euro 2020 star Manuel Locatelli before the Italian opted for a move to Turin in a £30m deal.

Now Arteta and sporting director Edu will have to seek out other striker targets.

Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin is rumoured to be a name on their shortlist.

Arsenal also like the look of Real Sociedad star Alexander Isak – another who impressed at the Euros.

But with the futures of all three Arsenal strikers Alexandre Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah and Pierre-Emerick Aubamyeng in doubt, it is clear the Gunners need reinforcements.

Aubameyang is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain but even the cash-rich French outfit may be unwilling to match the £350,000 salary he is paid by Arsenal.

Arteta has this week flown to the US to see club owner Stan Kroenke in a bid to get backing for reinforcements.
