Arsenal meet with agent to discuss transfer targets

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have arranged a meeting with a prominent Italian agent to discuss potential deals for two Serie A stars, reports TuttoMercatoWeb.

The Gunners have been linked with a number of stars in the January transfer window, most notably strikers, as they look to cover for the absence of the injured Theo Walcott.

Arsene Wenger himself has admitted that he will try to add reinforcements this month but also said that the January market is a torrid place to do business.

However, Arsenal have taken another step towards making some major additions by sending representatives to discuss potential deals with agent Alessandro Lucci in Milan.

One of the players believed to be on the agenda is Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic.

The 30-year-old has played a bit-part role under Antonio Conte, starting just four games in Serie A as he struggles to get ahead of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.

With Vucinic's contract set to expire in 2015, the Old Lady are keen to offload him while he still has a significant transfer value, opening the door for officials at the Emirates to try and broker a deal.

The other star set to be discussed in the meeting is Fiorentina ace Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, who Arsenal were strongly linked with in the summer.

The Gunners were rumoured to have made a significant bid for the Colombian midfielder in the summer only to see it rejected by the Viola. However, a meeting with the agent to discuss his availability clearly suggests that Wenger remains interested.
