Arsenal Emerges as Preferred Destination for €100 Million Real Madrid Target

Real Madrid is actively seeking reinforcements in various positions on the field, with their focus now turning to the striker position. With Karim Benzema's fitness struggles and advancing age at 35, it is evident that Los Blancos will need to secure a long-term successor to the Frenchman sooner rather than later.

Erling Haaland stands as the dream signing, but acquiring him for Santiago Bernabeu will prove to be a formidable challenge. Real Madrid, therefore, has been exploring alternative options, and one player who has long been linked to the club is Dusan Vlahovic. Despite the Serbian not living up to expectations during his stint at Juventus, he remains highly regarded as one of Europe's most promising strikers.

However, a potential setback looms for Real Madrid in their pursuit of the 23-year-old talent. According to reports from Fichajes (via GOAL), Vlahovic has expressed a preference for joining Arsenal as the next chapter in his career, presenting a hurdle for Real Madrid's intentions.

Vlahovic's signing with Juventus in January 2022 commanded a transfer fee of approximately €81 million from Fiorentina. While he has delivered a decent scoring record for the Turin-based club, his performance has fallen short of the initial high expectations. Additionally, Vlahovic's style does not align well with Massimiliano Allegri's system, fueling rumors of a potential departure this summer.

Speculations suggest that Juventus might be willing to part ways with Vlahovic for a significant transfer fee of around €100 million. This substantial investment for a young striker whose time in Turin has been underwhelming may deter Real Madrid from pursuing his services in the near future.
