Arsenal have been linked with Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic in reports today, in a bid to strengthen their title chances. Arsenal are acutely short of striking options and are supposed to be keen to tie up a deal at the earliest. Here’s a look at three reasons why it would be a good idea.
Like most of the attackers that have been linked with Arsenal in the last month, Mirko Vucinic is extremely versatile, typifying the sort of player that Arsenal need- one who can play anywhere across the front line. Vucinic can slot into any role in attack, but has often been deployed as a winger on either flank, center-forward or even as a deep lying striker.
Vucinic creates plenty of opportunities for his side with his dribbling and through-balls. When he plays on the wing, he likes to cut inside on the right, and has a powerful shot in his arsenal. He would fit in nicely into Arsenal’s system as an alternative to Giroud given his ability to get involved in the build-up play.
