Arsenal keen on Vlahovic amid Juve turmoil


With just a month to go until the January transfer window opens, there’s a lot of gossip circulating about who’s going where. Transfer Talk brings you all the latest buzz on rumours, whereabouts and, of course, deals!

TOP STORY: Arsenal keen on Vlahovic from Juventus

Juventus might be willing to leave Dusan Vlahovic leave, with Arsenal leading any potential race to sign the Serbian striker, according to Calciomercato.

Vlahovic endured a disappointing World Cup with Serbia as his only goal and start was a 3-2 loss to Switzerland while his country finished bottom of Group G with one point.

And although the 22-year-old has registered seven goals and two assists in 15 appearances in all competitions for Juventus this season, he has suffered several injury problems.

At least four or five European clubs have already shown interest in Vlahovic. He was linked with Arsenal last January before signing with Juve for 70 million euros from Fiorentina.

Arsenal’s Premier League title hopes were dealt a major blow last week when it was confirmed that the striker Gabriel Jesus had undergone knee surgery, with sources telling ESPN the Brazilian striker could be sidelined for around three months.

And while a January signing to make up for Jesus’ absence would help, a move for Vlahovic probably wouldn’t happen until the summer.

Juventus’ financial situation plays a role in their potential openness to the striker’s departure. Last month, Juventus’ board – including chairman Andrea Agnelli and vice-chairman Pavel Nedved – resigned en masse amid an investigation into fraudulent accounting and alleged hidden payments to players.

GOSSIP PAPER

– Sport Bild reports that Leroy Sane leaving Bayern Munich for Arsenal could be an option.

– Liverpool held talks regarding Fiorentina and Morocco midfielder Sofiane Amrabatreports Sky Germany Florian Plettenberg, who adds that others may follow. At the moment, Fiorentina don’t want to let the 26-year-old leave in January while the player wants to leave no later than summer.

– Fabrizio Romano said on his YouTube channel that Manchester United wanted to get Diogo Dalot commit to a new long-term contract, discharge Aaron Wan-Bissaka then bringing in a new right-back. The Red Devils already have the option of extending Dalot’s contract for another year, but they want to negotiate a new deal to ensure the Portugal international stays longer than that.

– Juventus have expressed interest in signing Rick Karsdorp, whose departure from AS Roma seems inevitable, according to Calciomercato. The Dutchman has been criticized by Roma manager Jose Mourinho for his form, with the manager pretty much dropping the right-back from the team.

– Nottingham Forest inquired about signing Union Berlin striker Sheraldo Becker in the January transfer window, according to Florian Plettenberg. Forest are keen on signing him to help them avoid relegation, while the Surinamese international wants to play in the Premier League at some point in his career.
