Arsenal Transfer News: Dusan Vlahovic’s Alternative Found

Arsenal Transfer News: Raul De Tomas of Espanyol has been identified as a potential replacement for Arsenal’s top target Dusan Vlahovic in the January transfer window.

Arsenal Transfer News: As reported by AS, Arsenal have set their eyes on Raul De Tomas as a potential signing. Premier League heavyweights Arsenal has targeted the Espanyol front as a potential transfer replacement for Dusan Vlahovic, as Mikel Arteta seeks to sign a top-tier striker during the January transfer window.

Arsenal has been heavily linked with a move for Dusan Vlahovic in recent weeks. They are even willing to satisfy Fiorentina’s demands of €70m. But it seems that the player’s representative is holding out for a possible transfer to Juventus. As a result, Vlahovic may decide to wait until the summer before making his choice. The player is hoping to get regular involvement in the UEFA Champions League.

Arteta has been forced to look for viable alternatives on the market as a result of this. Arsenal has been linked with a move for Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin in recent weeks. But they might face heavy opposition from their league rivals West Ham United in their pursuit of the England international.

Apart from Calvert-Lewin, it seems Arteta is also keeping an eye on Raul De Tomas. In recent months, Arsenal has been keeping an eye on the growth of the Espanyol strikers. Since his return to Spain in early 2020, the Spaniard has established himself as a top-class goalscorer in La Liga.

In only 76 competitive appearances over the course of two years, the former Real Madrid youngster has scored 40 goals. This season, he has scored 12 goals in La Liga. His performances in the final third proved to be crucial in helping Espanyol retain their mid-table position and avoid relegation from the top division.

De Tomas’ time in Catalonia, on the other hand, might be coming to an end. Arsenal is reportedly interested in signing him. Even though Arteta lacks the physical attributes of Vlahovic’s game, the Spanish striker feels he has what it takes to emerge as the long-term alternative for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Aubameyang has fallen out of favour at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gabonese international’s future at the club is in doubt due to interest from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, and AC Milan. On the other hand, Alexandre Lacazette’s Arsenal deal expires at the end of the season.

It highlights the need for a new centre-forward, with Arsenal transfer news covering a lot of potential targets. Raul De Tomas appears as an appealing alternative due to his age profile and recent success with Espanyol. It is possible that the Catalans would refuse to authorise a loan agreement for the Spanish striker in January. This will mean that Arsenal will be forced to activate his €70m release clause to get his services. Now, we have to wait and watch what the Gunners decide to do.
