Dusan Vlahovic is open to leaving Juventus in January, while Arsenal monitor his situation in Turin.

Arsenal were keen to sign the Serbia international for Fiorentina last January during his successful campaign, having scored 20 goals for the Serie A side before February.

While the Gunners were prepared to shell out big bucks to bring him to the Emirates, Vlahovic opted to stay in Italy and joined Juventus in a £58 million deal.

The Bianconeri endured a turbulent 2022 but were 10 points off the top of the league, knocked out of the Champions League and struggling off the pitch that left the club reeling.

In November, the entire board of the club, including President Andrea Agnelli and Vice President Pavel Nedved, resigned from the club, which is under investigation for alleged false accounting.

This has seen the futures of a number of Juventus stars come under scrutiny, with The Times reporting that Vlahovic is among those considering a departure. The 28-year-old is said to be open to a departure from Turin next month or in the summer, with Arsenal keeping their finger on the pulse.

Recent reports in Italy also suggest Manchester United have replaced Vlahovic, with Erik ten Hag keen to sign a striker in January, with Anthony Martial his only recognized option through centre.

United would prepare a €50m bid for PSV Eindhoven star Cody Gakpo, but Vlahovic could be a more natural person to take the lead.

Since joining Juventus, Vlahovic has scored 16 goals and provided four assists in 36 games and most recently represented Serbia at the World Cup.

Arsenal will be without Gabriel Jesus until March after the Brazil international underwent knee surgery.

To avoid solutions, Arsenal are also interested in signing Mykhailo Mudryk to expand their options upfront. Shakhtar Donetsk’s deputy sporting director Carlo Nicolini recently confirmed the Gunners’ interest.

Many clubs have indirectly invested in Mudryk without an official offer. Lots of calls,” he says.

“I believe that Italian teams today find it difficult to take on such a profile, both because of the value and because of the lack of courage to invest in such a profile.”
