Vucinic will undergo a medical in north London and is expected to complete a loan move.
Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic has agreed a deal with Arsenal to head to the club on-loan until the end of the season and will undergo a medical, reports Inside Futbol.
The 30-year-old was on the verge of joining Inter Milan earlier in the January transfer window, but the swap deal with Fredy Guarin fell through at the last minute.
It’s left Vucinic in limbo as the Montenegro international is desperate to leave Turin after falling down the pecking order for a starting place – with the forward behind Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez.
Although it has become apparent the Gunners need support in attack, manager Arsene Wenger is reluctant to commit to bringing anyone in on a permanent basis.
Whilst Olivier Giroud has been in good form, the backup of Nicklas Bendtner and Yaya Sanogo look inadequate for a Premier League title push.
Lukas Podolski can also fill in up-front, as could Theo Walcott until the England international suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury that will keep the 24-year-old sidelined until next season.
Therefore bringing in an experienced attacker on-loan would be the best possible outcome for Wenger and Vucinic could be the perfect acquisition for that role.
The Montengrin has enjoyed a solid career in Italy since first joining Lecce in the summer of 2000, before moving onto AS Roma and then Juve.
For the three Italian clubs Vucinic has scored 124 goals in 403 appearances, whilst having also earned 37 caps for the national team to date – netting 15 times.
