Arsenal 'face transfer battle with Man City for Dusan Vlahovic and Alexander Isak if Pep misses out on Erling Haaland'

ARSENAL will face stiff transfer competition from Manchester City for Dusan Vlahovic and Alexander Isak if Erling Haaland heads to Spain, reports say.

Vlahovic, 21, and Isak, 22, have both been linked with the Gunners but Man City may now turn their attention on the two strikers.


The Athletic reports that if City fail to capture the Dortmund star, then they will go after Vlahovic and Isak.

Vlahovic has scored a staggering 16 goals in 19 Serie A games for Fiorentina this season.

The Serbian is a clinical finisher and has scored 47 goals in total for the Tuscan side since joining in 2018.

Lucas Torreira is on loan at Fiorentina from Arsenal and has been a crucial part of the Viola midfield.

So Arsenal are hoping they can land Vlahovic by wangling a swap deal using the Uruguayan.

The North London club are also targeting Swedish striker Alexander Isak, who plays for Spanish outfit Real Sociedad.

Isak has spoken of his wish to play Premier League football in the past.

The 22-year-old star has fired home 41 goals in total in just over a hundred games for the Basque Country club.

But as the Athletic report, if City miss out on Haaland, Pep will also be after a hotshot striker in Manchester.

Fans are convinced that Haaland is heading to to Barcelona or Real Madrid after swearing in perfect Spanish on Saturday.

And reports in Spain suggest that a deal is done between Dortmund and Barcelona for Haaland to head to Catalonia.
