Mirko Vucinic could soon join Gunners, to ease Arsenal’s striker problems…
The agent of Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic will be jetting in to London in the coming days to speak to Arsenal regarding a potential permanent deal, according to respected Italian football journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Gunners were interested on taking the Montenegrin on loan, but Juventus are keen to ship the 30-year-old out permanently…
Arsenal currently top the Premier League table, but are keen to reinforce the forward berths with backup Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner injured, meaning Frenchman Olivier Giroud is the only current recognised centre-forward available.
This term, Vucinic has only scored two goals in four appearances, and will surely be keen to move to the Emirates for the increased chance of first-team football.
