Mikel Arteta is still actively seeking new recruits as we prepare to head into the final week of the window, with a host of players being linked with the Emirates Stadium.

And one of the most persistent links this month has been that of Dusan Vlahovic, with the Gunners keen on striking a deal for the Fiorentina frontman.

It has been suggested that Arsenal have seen a £66million offer for the striker accepted, while Juventus are also understood to be interested.

However, fresh reports from La Repubblica in Italy suggest that the 21-year-old could snub both those offers - as he is said to ‘prefer’ the option of joining Manchester City.

City are close to sealing a deal for River Plate forward Julian Alvarez, but are also said to be eyeing Vlahovic after his goal-laden start to the Serie A campaign.

Elsewhere, Arsenal have also been linked with Lille midfielder Renato Sanches.

Arteta is in dire need of additional midfield options and Sanches is one of several names thought to be under consideration.

And SportItalia now claim that the 24-year-old has made a big decision over his future - having chosen to park contract talks with his current club, with his eyes on a switch elsewhere.
