Report: Thomas Tuchel keen to sign £70.5m striker Arsenal and Chelsea want
Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal and Graham Potter’s Chelsea have been linked with Dusan Vlahovic, but it seems that new Bayern Munich head coach Thomas Tuchel wants the Juventus striker as well.
CMW have reported that Bayern are interested in signing Vlahovic from Juventus in the summer transfer window.
Tuchel is reportedly a fan of the Serbia international striker and would like him in his team at Bayern for next season and beyond.
Juventus are open to selling the 23-year-old, but the former Serie A and UEFA Champions League winners want as much as €80 million (£70.54 million) in transfer fees.
Thomas Tuchel interest in Dusan Vlahovic blow for Arsenal and Chelsea
Bayern and Tuchel’s interest in Vlahovic will come as a blow for Arsenal.
Both the Gunners and the Blues have been linked with the former Fiorentina striker.
The Sun have reported this month that Arsenal are keen on signing Vlahovic, described by former Juventus hero Alessio Tacchinardi as “extraordinary”.
La Stampa reported last month that Arsenal, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United all want the striker.
Arsenal do have Gabriel Jesus as their main striker, but they could still do with added quality upfront.
And Chelsea need a top number 9.
Bayern are one of the biggest clubs in the world and regularly win the Bundesliga and challenge for the UEFA Champions League.
We believe that a move to Bayern and go straight into the team and lead the line would be very tempting for Vlahovic.
And Bayern do need a young striker to lead their attack for the coming years if they are to properly replace Robert Lewandowski, who is now at Barcelona.
