It is said that the Gunners were quoted £58m for the 21-year-old, who has scored 18 goals in 22 appearances this season.

Arsenal were also told that Vlahovic would require a salary of £160,000-a-week after tax, which equates to £300,000-a-week.

Whoever signs the 14-cap Serbia international will also have to shell out £15m in agent fees to his representatives.

In total, the signing of Vlahovic will require a package worth £150m, according to the Daily Mail.

Elsewhere, Newcastle are believed to be preparing a £58.5m bid for the Fiorentina No.9, according to Tancredi Palmer.

With the backing of the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia (PIF), Eddie Howe has a genuine chance of landing Vlahovic.

Another issue for Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle in Dusan Vlahovic race

If shelling out £150m wasn’t enough of a problem, there’s another issue for Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle in this transfer saga.

The Daily Mail believe Vlahovic is determined to play at the highest level, involving Champions League football.

Currently, none of the Premier League trio can even offer him Europa League football, which could prove to be an issue.

However, the Daily Mail state that, if Vlahovic can be convinced by Mikel Arteta’s project, he could agree a move to the Emirates Stadium.

After all, the Gunners are firmly in contention to qualify for the Champions League this season – they currently sit fourth in the Premier League.

Keep an eye on this saga, as it’s developing rather quickly.
