Arsenal striker target Mirko Vucinic will not be joining the club in January, his agent has confirmed.

The Montenegro international has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks, with the Gunners reportedly keen on a loan switch for the player.

However, Alessandro Lucci insists that a move to north London is not on the cards in the final days of the transfer window, and he’ll be staying at Juventus.

"There is no chance that Vucinic will join Arsenal. He has decided to remain with Juventus,” his agent told talkSPORT.

Juventus had been tipped to replace Vucinic with Pablo Osvaldo, the radio station claims, but his potential move to Turin will have no impact on the 30-year-old.

Arsenal are relatively light of options in attack this season, with Olivier Giroud their first choice and Nicklas Bendtner the only senior back-up available.

Vucinic certainly would have provided something different – and a touch of experience – if Arsene Wenger had been able to lure him to north London, but a move now appears dead in the water for the Gunners.

And, the Arsenal boss has also revealed that whilst the club are active in the market, they are not close to bringing anybody new to the Emirates Stadium at this stage.
