Arsenal need a new long-term option at centre-forward and Vlahovic is considered one of Europe’s hottest properties right now, having fired 18 goals in just 22 games so far this season.

Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport reported earlier this month that an offer worth £58.3m has been tabled for Vlahovic. The deal would also see Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira – currently on loan with La Viola – stay at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on a permanent basis.

But sources in Italy suggest Arsenal have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Vlahovic after journalist Gianluca di Marzio claimed he is seeking a more “ambitious” project than what Arsenal are offering.

At the Mail, it has been claimed that the Serb wants wages topping £300,000-a-week.

Schick was linked with Arsenal and a host of other clubs earlier in the window and the striker has now commented on the situation.

The Czech star’s wage demands are reportedly far lower than Vlahovic and he also boasts an impressive record that amounts to 17 goals in 19 games this campaign.
