Juventus could be ready to leave Dusan Vlahovic leaving Arsenal the leaders in any potential race to sign the Serbian forward, according to Calciomercato.

At least four or five European clubs are already interested in Vlahovic. He had been linked with Arsenal last January before signing for Juve from Fiorentina.

Arsenal’s Premier League title hopes were dealt a huge blow last week when a striker was confirmed Gabriel Jesus had undergone knee surgery, with sources telling ESPN the Brazilian striker could be out for around three months.

And while a winter signing to address Jesus’ absence would help, a Vlahovic move would likely not happen until the summer.

Juventus’ financial situation is playing a role in their potential openness to letting the striker go. Last month, Juventus’ board of directors, including chairman Andrea Agnelli and vice-chairman Pavel Nedved, resigned en masse amid an investigation into fraudulent accounting and alleged hidden payments to players.
