    Arsenal are being strongly linked with a move for Vucinic, and according to a report from Simone Bargellini of Sky Sports, the forward is training alone.

    Vucinic saw a potential move to Inter Milan fall through, according to a report from the Daily Mail Online's Adam Shergold, but he could still be on the move.

    Arsenal are in need of a new striker. In addition to the proposed move for Julian Draxler, they are in the hunt for Vucinic.

    Bargellini quoted the forward's agent, Alessandro Lucci, as saying: 

    Vucinic spoke with (Antonio) Conte and they have agreed he will train apart in these last days of the transfer market because he is involved in some possible negotiations.

    But I want to say that Mirko has never asked to be sold.
