Arsenal could repeat the same error when they offer Dusan Vlahovic a ‘table contract’


Arsenal are prepared to take an almighty risk in order to secure the signature of Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic by making the Serbian the highest earner at the club.

According to Italian news outlet Lanazione, the striker will earn himself an eye-watering £308,000 a week if he decides to accept the deal that the Gunners have ‘tabled’ and make the move to the Emirates Stadium.

Paying any player this fee comes with risk, but it is especially true for the Gunners.

The North London club had previously made an extraordinary offer for a star but they were rejected.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is an example of this. The Gabonese forward was handed a £250,000-a-week deal in 2020 but has since upset the club on several occasions and was most recently stripped of the captaincy of the club for a disciplinary breach.

Mesut Ozil, a former Gunners star, was another player who was given a huge deal. However, he was able to slip in form and was finally shown the exit.

Vlahovic, 21, has the opportunity to be a key player in Arsenal’s team. This will only happen as the Arsenal youth prospects continue their upwards spiral.

Fiorentina forward, who has assisted two goals and scored 17 goals in 21 Serie A appearances this season, is likely to attract more interest from top clubs around Europe.

Both Ozil and Aubameyang have let bumper contracts ruin their reputation at Arsenal
Arsenal has seen the reputation of Ozil, Aubameyang and their bumper contracts ruined by Aubameyang and Ozil.

It is not surprising that Mikel Arteta, manager of the club, wants to add another forward after Alexandre Lacazette was released from contract at the end and Eddie Nketiah was expected to leave.

Aubameyang, who has been removed from the team and appears to be destined for a move in near future, is a significant concern.

The Spaniard spent £150million over the summer to add quality and youthfulness into the squad, but none of that money was spent on improving the players in the final third.

But, this could be changing. Vlahovic’s arrival could help Arteta secure Champions League Football next season and attract more top talent to the Emirates.
