Juventus agree to sell striker to Arsenal - agent in London for talks

Published Add your comment

Juventus managing director Beppe Marotta has confirmed that the club will agree to sell Mirko Vucinic if the player decides he wants to leave.

The Montenegrin striker has struggled to get in to the side at the Juventus Stadium this season, falling behind Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente in the pecking order.

The player has started just four games in Serie A so far this season, increasing speculation that he could be allowed to leave in January.

That has alerted Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who is believed to be on a manic search for a striker to cover the injured Theo Walcott and Nicklas Bendtner.

Vucinic was the latest name mentioned in line with Arsenal, with representatives from the Emirates meeting the player's agent at an airport in Milan to discuss a transfer.

Although Arsenal are not reported to have approached Juventus about the player yet, the club have sent them signals that Vucinic is available.

Marotta was quoted as saying in Calciomercato: "Even here, we have always said, it's for the players to decide their fate.

"So, if one of them were to come to us and say they want to leave because they have little opportunity, we will try to grant their request, of course, consistent with the requests coming in, because if you do not have the requests, obviously, you can not please them. This applies to all players."

The comments seemed to have given Arsenal a boost in their pursuit of the player and Gazetto delllo Sport are claiming that agent Alessandro Lucci will meet with Arsenal in London on Monday to discuss the player's availability.
