Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta revealed that the club is still an attractive destination for world-class players. Arsenal has failed to qualify for the Champions League since 2016 and is said to be interested in signing Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina this January transfer window. Vlahovic is highly rated after he equaled Cristiano Ronaldo’s record for Serie A goals in 2021.
“Historically, this club has been targeting the best players in the world and the best players in the world were always interested to come here,” Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said. “I consider that situation hasn’t changed. That is one of our biggest powers. Every time I have spoken to any player they were so willing to come, I have not faced any other situation. Our capacity to get the attention of people to come to our club is something that is a big advantage for us.”
“The situation is that Eddie is our player and he is going to stay here with us,” he added. “He is our player and he is under contract, so he will stay with us. We talked about all of the possibilities. When you are finalizing a deal there are certain things you cannot miss out on if you want to complete that deal. Again, I said the interest of the player was clear after what happened in the summer. That was the right thing to do. I don’t think we can make a decision that is going to have an impact on the next six to 18 months, just for a day or two. I don’t see it as very logical.”
