Arsenal handed free-scoring Serie A striker’s blow, identify alternative goal poacher

There are reports that Arsenal have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Dusan Vlahovic.

Juventus have offered £58m for the striker, as well as Dejan Kulusevski, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, via Get Football News Italy.

And the report also suggest the 21-year-old favours a move to Juventus.

Kulusevski has been linked with a move away from Juve in recent weeks, with the club now looking to use him in part-exchange to sign Vlahovic.

Arsenal could reportedly look to sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin, should their attempts to capture Dusan Vlahovic fail.

The Gunners are continuing to monitor the Everton striker, who they have been linked with in the past, according to talkSPORT.

Time is running out to seal a deal for Vlahovic, and the club may be forced into looking elsewhere if progress cannot be made.

That could be in the form of Calvert-Lewin, who has scored three goals in five Prem games this campaign.

The striker has been hampered by injury this season, but has been linked with the Gunners in recent months.

And interest could resurface if a negotiations for Vlahovic reach an impasse.
