Fiorentina chief confirms bids and provides update on future of Arsenal target Vlahovic

Fiorentina chief confirms bids and provides update on future of Arsenal target Vlahovic

 

Fiorentina director Daniele Prade has, on Monday, provided an update on the situation of star striker and known Arsenal transfer target Dusan Vlahovic.

Vlahovic has of course been hotly tipped for an Emirates switch this month, amid a scintillating campaign to date which has seen him bag 20 goals in just 24 appearances across all competitions.

In turn, it came as little little surprise when the subject of the Serbian international’s future was put to the aforementioned Daniele Prade earlier this evening.

And the Viola chief went on to provide a telling insight into the situation.

First, it was confirmed that offers have indeed been forthcoming for the talismanic attacker, albeit without the identity of the club/clubs involved revealed.

Significantly, Prade then reiterated that Fiorentina are open to the prospect of a January sale. Not only that, but the Italian too opened the door for Vlahovic to link up with long-time rivals Juventus.

So, what’s the hold up?

Well, any potential sale is being dragged out by the player himself, whose representatives refuse to discuss the situation with the club:

Gunners move on?

Is it worth noting that Prade’s latest comments come swiftly on the back of speculation beginning to spread that Arsenal have essentially been forced to call time on their pursuit of Vlahovic.

First, it was reported in the Italian press that the Gunners ‘are ready to open talks’ with Real Sociedad over the signature of Alexander Isak.

This comes amid the suggestion that Vlahovic last week turned down an offer on the part of the transfer team at the Emirates.

And ensuing speculation in Spain has pointed towards Espanyol standout Raul de Tomas as another potential option for Mikel Arteta and co, amid Arsenal’s desperate efforts to add fresh blood to the club’s frontline before the January transfer window slams shut.
