Arsenal have been linked with Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic at the start of the January window, in a bid to strengthen their title chances, but nothing materialized so far. However, according to latest reports from Football Italia, it is believed that the Gunners have agreed a deal with the Old Lady to sign Vucinic.

According to Tuttosport, the Montenegro international is considering his options and expected to fly out to London for a medical tomorrow.

Arsenal, who have been acutely short of striking options upfront, are in dire need of a attacking threat. A move for Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler has been termed as very much possible from almost all credible sources far the past two days, but this reports comes in as a surprise.

The 30-year old striker has very much gone down the pecking order at Juventus and was touted to move to Inter as a part of a swap deal involving midfielder Guardin, but the Nerazzurri pulled that down. It is now believed that Arsenal and Juventus have agreed a six month loan deal for Mirko Vucinic for the remainder of the season.
