Arsenal are set to make a late push to sign Serbian youngster Dusan Vlahovic. The teenage sensation who has already broken into the senior squad of Partizan Belgrade continues to display maturity on the pitch well beyond his age.

The young prodigy has been dubbed for big things in his career having last year enjoyed a record breaking season in his homeland with Partizan.

The young forward was understood to be set for a move to Italy but the Gunners believe they could yet hijack the deal to land the vastly talented striker.

Wenger is understood to want to change his tact when it comes to transfers, the Frenchman now was to be proactive rather than reactive during the transfer window. The gaffer is now poised to swoop for the Serbian under19 forward from the clutches of Fiorentina.

The 17-year-old is due to move to Florence after the Italian side agreed terms with Partizan Belgrade. However, according to Sportmediaset via Daily Cannon, Fiorentina fear that Arsenal could make an offer for the striker and price them out.

The report further states that Fiorentina could now “bring plans forward” to have Vlahovic in the Violas’ squad to fend off competition from other interested clubs. Arsenal, Juventus, and Anderlecht were linked with the talented teenager during his breakthrough season, but it was the Serie A outfit who quickly moved into pole position by reaching an agreement.

Vlahovic broke a trio of records when he made his Partizan debut in 2016. The striker who is currently their youngest ever player to represent the senior side is also Partizan’s youngest goalscorer in history. The 17-year-old is also the youngest player to feature in the “Eternal” derby against Red Star Belgrade.
