Talks ongoing – Arsenal still interested in €12m Juventus striker
Arsenal manager finally insisted he is looking to bolstering the squad but hasn’t found the right type of player yet. Nicklas Bendtner and Yaya Sanogo both will resume training next week, but Wenger insisted he is still in the market for a striker.
Wenger understands that he will not be able to get permanent moves for the first choice targets in January, hence is looking for loan moves only.
Arsenal were linked with a move for Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic. The Old Lady are willing to sell the Montenegro international, but are not interested to loan him, while luring Julian Draxler at the moment is not possible too.
According to the reports, there was a meeting on Friday between the player’s agent, Alessandro Lucci, and Arsenal over a possible move for Vucinic.
As we reported earlier, Arsenal are thought to be interested in getting the 30-year-old on loan, but the Bianconeri are demanding €12m for the striker. The player’s agent will be in London today to hold further talks.
Vucinic has made only four league starts this season and has dropped down the pecking orders at the club behind Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.
He would be more than willing to join a club like Arsenal as he would be targeting few games under his belt. The Gunners are also rumoured to be interested in Juventus striker Giovinvo but the player’s agent has ruled out such possibilities.
