Olympiakos join Arsenal in race to sign Juventus striker

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are facing fresh competition for the signature of Mirko Vucinic after Olympiakos joined the race for the Juventus striker.

TalkSPORT reports how the 30-year-old has been a long-term target for the north London club, who have failed to convince him to quit Turin in the previous two transfer windows.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be considering a renewed attempt to lure the Montenegro international to the Emirates Stadium this summer, as he seeks to provide competition for Olivier Giroud in attack.

Vucinic would add a wealth of experience to Arsenal's ranks in 2014/15, having enjoyed five successful seasons at AS Roma prior to his move to Juventus.

The striker has won back-to-back Serie 'A' titles under Antonio Conte, but could leave the Italian giants at the end of the campaign after falling down the first-team pecking order.

Vucinic has made just 16 appearances for Juventus in all competitions in 2013/14, with Carlos Tevez, Fernando Llorente and Dani Osvaldo all currently ahead of him.

And, with just over one year remaining on his contract, he could be available for a cut-price fee, something that Arsenal and Olympiakos will look to take advantage when the transfer window reopens again in June.
