Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic has not appeared since late October due to pubalgia, a strain or tear of the soft tissue in the groin. The loss of game time for the Serbian, who also missed the World Cup as a result, has prompted transfer links pointing to the exit door.
The €81M spent for Vlahovic has so far been stained due to his regular unavailability following an impressive start to his Bianconeri stint. According to La Stampa (via Tuttomercatoweb), Arsenal and Chelsea are on the hunt for the Serbian marksman’s signature.
More on Mudryk. Arsenal wanted him as priority — but they feel they did their best to sign Mudryk with huge bid.
Arsenal have been clear in the last two years. No bidding wars — respecting the club’s strategy and no panic as with Vlahović, Raphinha, Lisandro.

Premier League leaders Arsenal tried luring Vlahovic before his Juventus move, but time and again fell short of Fiorentina’s valuation. However, after losing out to Chelsea in the race for Ukrainian star winger Mykhailo Mudryk, Vlahovic could be targeted once again.
And despite signing Mudryk, the Blues could also bring in Vlahovic to support their depleted forward line consisting of just one pure center-forward – Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
Despite splurging over £100m this January, problems still remain in #CFC's team.

Vlahovic scored a brace against Sassuolo in his first game in the Bianconeri colors, before going on to rack in seven strikes to his name – marking him still as the club’s top scorer this season alongside fellow striker Arkadiusz Milik.
