Arsenal to make major cash offer for Fiorentina striker Vlahovic

Arsenal are to make a major cash offer for Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.

The Gunners are on the lookout for a new striker amid the uncertain futures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.

La Repubblica says Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso is ready to let Vlahovic go with Arsenal prepared to spend £58million.

That represents a sharp U-turn from Fiorentina who had been hopeful of their striker signing a new contract.

The club offered Vlahovic a five-year deal worth £34m but he is unwilling to put pen to paper - his representatives have also demanded a £6.6m fee to renew as well as a clause entitling them to 10 per cent of his future transfer fee.

Vlahovic is in the final 18 months of his contract and now Comisso is reportedly willing to cash in while his price tag remains high.

Fiorentina reportedly want £63m for their star man so Arsenal may have to increase their offer to land the 21-year-old in January.
