Arsenal are preparing for a busy January transfer window, with reports they are planning a £100million move for Juventus duo Dusan Vlahovic and Fabio Miretti.
Vlahovic, 22, arrived in Turin in January this year in a €70m transfer from Fiorentina, and after netting nine goals for his new club during the tail end of that campaign, he has hit the ground running with four goals from six starts this season.
Miretti, 19, is a product of Juventus’ youth academy, and with three appearances for Italy’s under-21 side under his belt, he has broken into Massimiliano Allegri’s team, with four starts from their past five Serie A fixtures.
Both are likely seen as key pieces moving forward, regardless of Allegri’s future with the club, so to pry them away Arsenal understand they will need to pay-up in a big way.
TOP STORY – ARSENAL TO LAUNCH £100M DOUBLE MOVE
Arsenal have been linked with a number of significant January targets, with the Mail reporting they have made contact with Eintracht Frankfurt’s Jesper Lindstrom, while Sport claim they are weighing up activating a €35m release clause for Villarreal’s Alex Baena.
What separates the Calciomercato report about the Juventus duo is that they are the only team named in the story, while it also claims Mikel Arteta is pushing for a bid to be made.
Despite the pair’s coveted status within the Juventus squad and the desperation for the team to turn their results around following five matches without a win, Calciomercato states that an offer of £100m would be “difficult to refuse”.
