It has been claimed by The Sun that Arsenal would compete with Chelsea for the acquisition of Dusan Vlahovic, a striker currently playing for Juventus. The 22-year-old rejected many bids from Premier League teams before signing a big deal with the Serie A club from Fiorentina in January 2022, with a value of £66.6 million.
But Vlahovic’s increasing dissatisfaction with the circumstances at San Siro has compelled him to seek a transfer despite still being in the first year of his contract. Arsenal and Chelsea have reopened their backchannel ties to try to negotiate a deal with the striker in light of this news.
Dusan Vlahovic report:
Neither team knows how much they’ll have to pay for Vlahovic’s services just yet. But they’ll need to at least match Juventus’ asking price if they want to sign him.
As they remain mired in the seventh position in the Premier League standings, Chelsea could need some help up front. The Blues have been on a signing frenzy since a change in ownership gave them the funds to do so. Thus, stocking up on promising young talent in order to create a powerful team for the future.
However, the Gunners are enjoying a fantastic season so far. They have kept their grip on first place all season. Even though the Gunners already have a youthful and promising team, Spanish manager Mikel Arteta is eager to finalize the acquisition of Vlahovic so that his team’s assault can be more incisive.
Both Arsenal and Chelsea have shown interest in signing the Juventus striker. But the team that gets his services remains to be seen. It will be intriguing to observe how this tale develops in the next weeks when the transfer window will be open.

Chelsea wants to steal Mykhailo Mudryk under the noses of Arsenal
Some supporters of Arsenal’s rival club, Chelsea, have expressed their desire to sign Mykhailo Mudryk, a Ukrainian international defender if his transfer fee exceeds.
While Arsenal supporters have made it obvious that they want to sign Ukrainian international Mykhailo Mudryk, they have also made it known that they will not spend more than £60 million to do it.
Many Arsenal supporters feel the 21-year-old winger from Shakhtar Donetsk will be an important cog in the Gunners’ future roster because of his impressive talent and flexibility.
Fans do not want to engage in a bidding war with the Blues for Mudryk, though. They have asked that the club abandon its pursuit of the Ukrainian if he commands a transfer fee of more than £60 million.
