Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic has hopes of joining Arsenal this week.

Gazzetta dello Sport says the Gunners have been linked with the forward throughout January, and the Montenegrin is thought to be keen on a switch to north London.

Indeed, Vucinic is still anticipating a late move from the Premier League leaders.

The 30-year-old was part of a swap deal with Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin last week, but the exchange eventually fell through.

With Arsenal lacking traditional centre-forwards, a deal for Vucinic could be forthcoming.
