Opens the door to Vlahovic’s deal
Meanwhile, Arsenal’s hopes of securing a transfer for Dusan Vlahovic appear likely to be tested with a strong demand from Fiorentina threatening to keep the deal away from them.

Arsenal, on the other hand, would prefer a cost spread over a five-and-a-half-year deal they want to hand over the Serb.
Competitors can pounce

And while the Serie A side are willing to make the Uruguayan stay permanent, they want the Torreira deal to remain separate.
As a result of, football. London He is expected to open the transfer window for Manchester City or Tottenham.
The Gunners will continue to work on a deal and hope to reach a satisfactory outcome before the window closes.
