Arsenal’s recruitment drive is beginning to gather pace as we enter the final few days of the transfer window. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has so far been typically tight-lipped about his dealings, but stories have continued to link the Premier League leaders with a host of players.
The 30-year-old has seemingly been deemed as surplus to requirements at Juventus, and has been linked with numerous clubs in Italy and England.
He appeared set for a switch to Inter Milan as part of a swap deal that would have seen midfielder Fredy Guarin head in the opposite direction.
However that move fell through, and with Vucinic still looking for a new club, reports in Italy suggest he’s hoping that Arsenal follow up on their initial interest in him and make an approach to Juve.
The Gunners look light in the striker department, with Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner as their only options in attack.
Reports earlier suggested that Arsenal were pushing for the loan deal for the player but that move stalled because Arsenal decided to go with the permanent deal. But Vucinic is a small term replacement. If Arsenal want to ensure dominance in the Premier League they will have to buy a striker in Wayne Rooney’s mould who could drive them a consistent successful period.
