Striker could be on his way to north London
Thursday 30 January 2014
Arsenal have reached an agreement with Juventus to loan striker Mirko Vucininc for the rest of the season, according to reports.
It is understood that the striker is due in London today for talks and a medical with the club if he is keen on the switch.
Vucinic had reportedly been in line for a switch to Inter, in a swap deal with Fredy Guarin, but that has fallen through.
Italian media now believe the Montenegrin international could be on his way to the Emirates.
Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has also confirmed the striker could leave, but was coy about whether he really will.
He told Italian media: "Vucinic? He will go if we ask him. This, however, has not yet happened"
