Arsenal are plotting a summer move for Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic, reports suggest.

According to unnamed Italian sources cited by talkSPORT, the Gunners - who have been heavily linked with Vucinic in the past  - are still monitoring the Montenegrin international and will make another effort to sign him at the end of the season.

30-year-old Vucinic joined Juventus from Serie A rivals Roma in 2011, yet has seen his role in Turin diminish somewhat over recent months with Antonio Conte having added a plethora of new strikers to his ranks.

With the likes of Carlos Tevez, Fernando Llorente and Pablo Osvaldo now seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order at Juventus Stadium, Vucinic has made just 10 appearances in Serie A for The Old Lady this season, registering two goals.

Arsenal - who have seen their previously credible Premier League title bid falter somewhat in recent weeks after a run of poor form - will obviously require the addition of a new striker this summer.

Frenchman Olivier Giroud - who joined Arsenal from Ligue 1 outfit Montpellier almost two years ago - started the season in fantastic goalscoring form but has been subject to fierce criticism of late.

And with chief back-up Nicklas Bendtner surely set to depart the club this summer, it is unlikely that Arsene Wenger will be content with just Yaya Sanogo to provide the necessary element of competition.

However, with Vucinic apparently rated at around the £10 million mark by Juventus, it could perhaps be argued that he represents little more than stop-gap, short-term option for Arsenal.
