Juventus could sell Arsenal target Dusan Vlahovic and sign West Ham United striker Gianluca Scamacca to replace him, according to a report in Italy.
Juventus could sell Arsenal target Dusan Vlahovic to sign West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca
La Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that Juventus have identified Scamacca of West Ham as a potential replacement for Vlahovic, who has been linked with Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.
If the Italian giants do sell Vlahovic, then, as a replacement for the Serbia international striker, they would like to bring in Italy international striker Scamacca from the Hammers.
The Sun reported this month that Arsenal are keen on signing Vlahovic.
La Stampa reported last month that Arsenal, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United all want the striker.
HITC Verdict: Encouraging for Arsenal
In our view, that Juventus have identified a potential replacement for Dusan Vlahovic is very encouraging for Arsenal.
It suggests that the Bianconeri are at least considering the prospect of selling the £215,000-a-week (SalarySport) striker.
Now, of course, Arsenal will have to meet Juventus’s demands, but at least there is an opening for the Gunners to bring the talented and promising 23-year-old to the Emirates Stadium.
