Arsenal transfer target Dusan Vlahovic nets superb opener for Fiorentina vs Napoli to prove he’s real deal once again with Mikel Arteta keen to sign electric striker this month

  • Sports

There’s a reason why Dusan Vlahovic is being courted by some of Europe’s biggest clubs and he once again showed it on Thursday night.

The Serb, who is said to be Arsenal’s main target this month, netted another fantastic goal for Fiorentina to give his side the lead against Napoli.


Vlahovic is deadly in front of goal

The 21-year-old expertly controlled a ball into the box by Riccardo Saponara before slotting ruthlessly into the corner.

It was his 17th goal of the campaign in just 20 Serie A appearances and one that exhibited just why Mikel Arteta is so keen to bring him to the Emirates.

Arsenal have been in great form of late but they still lack a killer instinct at times and Vlahovic would be the perfect addition to Arteta’s squad.

The Spaniard insisted the Gunners can still attract the world’s best players amid the links to Vlahovic earlier this week.

“You hear a lot of rumours, like you hear about us,” he said.

“Some of them can be possible, some of them are not even considered. I think clubs are always willing to try to improve.

“We know that there are a couple of clubs in England now that have the possibility to buy players in January. Some of them have already done it. I am expecting more activity than last year because clubs are in a better position, but I don’t know how far we have come still through this pandemic.

“Historically this club has always been targeting the best players in the world and the best players in the world were always interested to come here and I can say that situation hasn’t changed.

“Every time I have spoken to any player, they were so willing to come. I haven’t faced any other situation and that’s one of our biggest powers.

“Our capacity to get the attention of people to come and join our club is something that is an advantage for us.”
