Mirko Vucinic keen on Arsenal transfer

Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic is still holding out for a move to Arsenal, according to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 30-year-old has seemingly been deemed as surplus to requirements at Juventus, and has been linked with numerous clubs in Italy and England.

He appeared set for a switch to Inter Milan as part of a swap deal that would have seen midfielder Fredy Guarin head in the opposite direction.

However that move fell through, and with Vucinic still looking for a new club, reports in Italy suggest he's hoping that Arsenal follow up on their initial interest in him and make an approach to Juve.

The Gunners look light in the striker department, with Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner as their only options in attack.

They were previously linked with a loan move for Vucinic as a short-term solution to their problems, but haven't pushed for the deal with time running out in the January window.

However should they do so, Gazzetta dello Sport say Vucinic is keen on a move to Arsenal.

The north London club appear to be focusing their efforts on landing Schalke starlet Julian Draxler.

According to reports, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is close to sealing a deal for the talented youngster.

The Gunners currently sit atop the Premier League, and booked a place in the 5th round of the FA Cup with victory over Coventry on Friday.
