Arsenal keep Vucinic on standby for deadline day swoop

Arsenal are keeping Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic on standby today.

The London Evening Standard says Arsenal will move for Vucinic if they cannot close a deal for Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler.

Arsenal are keen on Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata but have also monitored Vucinic for some time and enquired about the 30-year-old earlier this month. They were told Juve would only consider a permanent deal and the striker became part of a swap deal with Inter Milan for midfielder Fredy Guarin.

Vucinic was understood to have said goodbye to his team-mates and made preparations to move only for the deal to collapse, leaving the Montenegro international in limbo.

Juventus are now thought to be open to a temporary switch and Arsenal could make a late swoop.
