Arsenal hoping to secure January loan deal

Arsenal hope to sign Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic on loan until the end of the season, according to the Telegraph.

The Gunners are eager to add a new striker this month to strengthen their pursuit of the Premier League table, and Arsene Wenger looks to have turned his attentions to the 30-year-old, after growing frustrated in his pursuit of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

Juventus are willing to let Vucinic leave, but would prefer to agree a permanent transfer. Arsenal have been quoted a price of £8.2million for the Serbian forward, although they would much prefer to take him on loan.

Vucinic is keen to leave the Turin giants, after finding first team opportunities limited this season, following the summer arrivals of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.

Two goals from Santi Cazorla ensured Wenger’s side held onto top spot in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Fulham at the Emirates on Saturday.

And Wenger remained tight lipped over the prospect of bringing in new players following the win, going as far to say he was not ‘especially interested’ in Vucinic.

“We are looking at potential possibilities for us to get somebody in.” On whether a meeting was planned, he said: “Some people have visual capacities that I don’t have.” He added: “We are not on any special case. I would love to announce you something special.”
