Dusan Vlahovic has been in sensational form for Fiorentina this season

Arsenal have made a major breakthrough in their pursuit of Serbian sensation Dusan Vlahovic.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has identified Vlahovic as his first choice to replace former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

According to La Repubblica, Fiorentina are resigned to seeing their star forward leave the club and are prepared to accept a £58million offer from the North Londoners.

Vlahovic, 21, is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in world football, with a number of top European sides tracking his progress.

The 6ft 3in marksman is the top scorer in Serie A this term, netting 16 goals in 20 appearances.

Although La Viola are ready to sell, Arteta will need to convince Vlahovic that the Emirates is the right destination for the ambitious striker.

The Spanish coach is eager to close the deal, with Aubameyang set to leave the capital and Alexandre Lacazette in the last year of his contract.
