Vlahovic ‘makes Arsenal title contenders’ – and lorryload of cash can sway him

Fiorentina's superstar Dusan Vlahovic can make Arsenal 'title contenders, according to Paul Merson.

Vlahovic has been in electric form in Tuscany this season, and his goals have put Europe's top clubs on red alert as the January transfer window opens.

However, Arsenal are in need of an attacker more than most with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang frozen out of the squad and Alexandre Lacazette's deal up in the summer.

And Merson believes that Vlahovic is the man Mikel Arteta needs.

Writing in his column for Daily Star Sport, Merson has urged the Gunners to make a move for the Serbian put admits it will be tough.

"They should be breaking the bank to get Dusan Vlahovic in from Fiorentina in the summer – because he would make them title contenders," Merson wrote.

"I've heard he's not interested in Arsenal right now and I can understand that. But he might change his mind if they finish in the top four and offer him a lorryload of money.

"Arsenal would be able to play him every week because Aubameyang will be gone. Alexandre Lacazette will probably be gone. And so will Eddie Nketiah.

"They will need a goalscorer, and Vlahovic scores goals. He's also still young so he should get better and you're not wasting money paying a 29-year-old on the way down."
