Exclusive: Arsenal still interested in 'complete' 23-year-old striker despite 2022 snub


Arsenal remain interested in signing Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic as the Italian giants attempt to get a new contract finalised.

HITC Football understands Arsenal are keeping abreast of Dusan Vlahovic’s contract situation at Juventus as he remains a player of huge interest to the North London giants.

Vlahovic turned down Arsenal in 2022 in order to join Juve, but interest from the Gunners has never disappeared.

The Serbian striker endured a difficult campaign last season and that saw him linked with a summer move to England.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all held talks with intermediaries about a possible deal and Juventus were understood to be open to him being sold.


However, Juve brought in Cristiano Giuntoli last summer and things have changed.

Giuntoli persuaded Max Allegri to stay in charge, and he now wants to tie down Vlahovic along with team-mates Federico Chiesa and Adrien Rabiot, who he sees as key to their future.

Now, Vlahovic is again hitting form as one of Europe’s top strikers and Juve want him to finalise a new deal, with his current contract due to expire in 2026.

Sources have though confirmed to HITC Football that Arsenal’s interest in Vlahovic remains firm and they are watching his situation with interest.

Juve have informed Vlahovic they would like to finalise a new agreement over the summer ahead of next season.
