Vucinic was lined up to make a swap with Guarin but the deal is off.
Arsenal have been put on alert after Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic fails to complete a proposed swap deal with Inter Milan star Fredy Guarin, reports the Independent.
The transfer looked as good as done as Vucinic completed a medical at the San Siro, before Inter decided to demand a further £4.1m from Juve.
The Italian champions were not prepared to negotiate and as a result it seems as if the 30-year-old is once again available and the Gunners are keeping tabs.
Manager Arsene Wenger is keen to bring in attacking support, with Nicklas Bendtner and Yaya Sanogo looking below par and Theo Walcott out for the season with a cruciate ligement injury.
Olivier Giroud has been in good form and Lukas Podolski can fill in up-front, but that is likely to be too few options to maintain a Premier League title challenge.
Vucinic is keen to leave Turin after two-and-a-half years with the club, as Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez are now the preferred partnership in attack.
The Montenegro international joined the ‘Old Lady’ in the summer of 2011 from AS Roma and has since played 89 matches in all competitions, scoring 26 goals and providing 22 assists.
Tottenham Hotspur are also thought to be interested in Vucinic as they seek a replacement for Jermain Defoe – who leaves for FC Toronto on February 28 – but would prefer a loan deal.
