Antonio Conte insists he is only focused on improving his own Tottenham side after being asked about Arsenal signing Dusan Vlahovic

With many reports in the media suggesting that Mikel Arteta is keen on a new striker, there has been alot of rumours in the media suggesting that Vlahovic is the Gunners number one transfer target.

The big man is one of the most highly-rated strikers in Europe right now after taking Seria A by storm, and recent reports have suggested that the Gunners are ready to pay big money to wrap up a transfer deal

Now according to a supposed exclusive for OK Calcio Mercato, Arsenal have struck a deal with La Viola for his signature.

They claim that Arsenal will pay an initial fee of €80 Million up front, with another €26 Million in potential add-ons and bonuses.

Spurs and Arsenal recently had their London derby cancelled as the Gunners could not get a squad together, and the next time they meet, the Gunners could have one of the most deadly strikers in the game leading their attack.

Asked about Arsenal’s interest in Vlahovic – and the possibility of him playing against Tottenham this season – prior to Spurs’ dramatic win over Leicester, Conte replied: ‘I don’t like to speak about players of other clubs.

‘Also, even if other clubs are interested in these players, we have our own problems to solve. We have to focus on ourselves, it’s the best way to move forward.’

It is no secret that Conte is a fan of Vlahovic and would probably like him in that Tottenham squad. So he will not want to be facing the big man if he does actually join Arsenal.

But with only 10 days to go until the end of the transfer window, will the Gunners get this deal done?
