Arsenal linked Mirko Vucinic now touted to replace Joel Campbell at Olympiakos

Mirko Vucinic

Could Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic be replacing Arsenal loanee Joel Campbell at Olympiakos next season?

Montenegro striker Mirko Vucinic was reported to be joining Arsenal on loan in January but reportedly decided to stick it out at Juventus.

The forward has however made just four Serie A appearances since the transfer window closed, all from the bench.

He did get a start in the Europa League against Lyon, but he has not managed to add to his paltry goal tally of two, the last of which came in early January.

Yet a fresh start may be around the corner for Vucinic, he is being linked with a summer switch to Olympiakos.

Greek newspaper Gavros report that the 30-year-old attacker is being lined up by the current champions, as they seek to add to their squad for next season.

Vucinic is exactly the sort of competitive forward who would improve their team, and fill the gap created by Joel Campbell, who is expected to return from his season long loan from Arsenal.

Arsenal only had reported interest in Vucinic in January as a desperate late option, and it appears his chance to play for them has passed.

The prospect of Campbell soon getting his chance to shine in a Gunners shirt, certainly is worth fans getting excited about.
