Tutto Mercato is claiming that representatives of Arsenal were in Italy yesterday scouting two Juventus players Montenegrin striker Mirko Vucinic and Fiorentina’s Colombian winger Juan Guillermo Cuadrado.

The Juventus forward Vucinic has lost his place in the Bianconeri attack this season thanks to a growing understanding between Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente, and could very well prove to be the answer for Arsenals current striker dilemma.

The stumbling block however is that Arsenal would like to take Vucinic on loan till the end of the season, but the old lady of Italian football Juventus would rather see the striker make a permanent move from Turin for around £8 million.

As for Cuadrado the 25-year-old has had a good start for the Viola with three goals and two assists so far. Known as a highly versatile player his favourite position is on the right wing but he is capable of playing in any position on the right side of the pitch. Reports suggest that an initial bid from Arsenal was rejected, but they appear to be serious after Dick law was spotted with the Colombians agent in the game against Chievo.

The speedy Colombian already has 20 caps for his country and should he have a good World Cup his price would surely increase something which Arsenal should consider and if they are serious try and sign him now.
