Arsenal made a winning return to the Champions League on Wednesday as they beat Dutch side PSV 4-0 at The Emirates. 

Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard were all on the scoresheet in North London, earning Mikel Arteta’s side a convincing win in the Gunners’ first Champions League game in six years.

The Gunners have made an impressive start to the new season, winning four of their five Premier League matches so far.

Next up is the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur, but in the meantime it appears that Arsenal could be battling it out with another of their rivals.

According to Il Bianconero via The High Tackle, both Arsenal and Chelsea are interested in Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic.

The report claims that the two London sides, as well as Spanish giants Real Madrid, are interested in the Serbian striker and could move to sign him next summer.

Vlahovic, 23, joined The Old Lady from fellow Italian side Fiorentina in January last year, but he has struggled to maintain his best form since arriving in Turin.

Vlahovic has emerged as a target for both Chelsea and Arsenal

In total the attacker has scored 27 goals and provided seven assists in 67 matches across all competitions for Juventus, including four goals in as many games so far this term.

Chelsea have spent close to £1 billion over the past 12 months but have still struggled in front of goal, netting just 43 times in as many games since the start of last season.

The Blues did sign Nicolas Jackson from Villarreal over the summer, but the striker has netted just once in six appearances so far.

Vlahovic boasted an impressive record for former side Fiorentina, netting 49 goals in 108 games during his spell in Tuscany.

The Serbia international is contracted to Juventus until the summer of 2026, but the report claims that he could be sold next year and he is likely to attract significant interest from across Europe if he is made available.
