ARSENAL is said to have made an offer to buy Dusan Vlahovic with Fiorentina ready to sell the striker, according to reports.
The Gunners are looking for a new striker amid the uncertain futures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.
Vlahovic seems to be their top target and the Serbian appears set to leave The Viola.

“The more I live here, with this crazy sport, the more I realize how terrible it is.”
