Arsenal 'showing interest' in Serie A superstar as 'price tag' emerges

All the latest news and transfer rumours surrounding Arsenal as they prepare to take on rivals Chelsea.

Arsenal are back in action on Tuesday night when they face London rivals Chelsea in another big test for their Premier League title charge. The Gunners need to gain two points on Manchester City between now and the end of the season, currently a point ahead of the current title holders but having played a game more.

That likely means Mikel Arteta’s men need to win four or even five of their remaining five games, adding significant pressure to every remaining fixture. In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest news surrounding the Emirates Stadium.

Vlahovic links

Arsenal are said to be interested in a move for Juventus star Dusan Vlahovic ahead of this summer. The Gunners are expected to sign a striker ahead of next season, and Italian journalist Mirko Di Natale has claimed they hold significant interest in Vlahovic.

The Serbian striker burst onto the scene with Fiorentina and Juventus, scoring 33 in 70 league appearances for the latter. But there have been suggestions the Old Lady could sell him, and Arsenal are reportedly one of the interested parties as they look to solve their striker problem.

Summerville price

Arsenal will reportedly have to pay big to get their hands on reported target Crysencio Summerville this summer. The Dutchman has been tearing it up in the Championship, scoring two more goals for Leeds United on Monday night as they continued their promotion charge.

In the meantime, Football Insider have claimed the Whites will be extremely reluctant to sell Summerville this summer, and they will charge more than £30million and maybe even £40million this summer. The former fee is likely in the case they don’t achieve promotion, while it will take a very big fee if Leeds do return to the Premier League ahead of next season.
