Arsenal Transfer News: Latest Dusan Vlahovic and Raphael Guerreiro Rumours – Bleacher Report

Arsenal are chasing teenage Partizan Belgrade starlet Dusan Vlahovic, per Chris Hatherall of the Mirror.
The towering attacker, only 16 years old, is a technically gifted youngster and built in stature. 
Due to his technical ability and 6’3” frame, the striker has drawn comparisons with fellow imposing centre-forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic of Paris Saint-Germain.
The Gunners are expected to make a move for Vlahovic but face competition for his signature from Italian giants Juventus.
Per Hatherall, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s scouts have been watching the teenager since last summer.
When taking into account the age of the attacker, it is interesting to note that he has featured in eight league appearances for the Serbian club this season, scoring his first goal for the club in their 3-2 win against Radnik Surdulica on April 2, per Soccerway. 
90min writer Nemanja Grbic confirmed the teenager made history with his goal:

Yugoslav Futbolu provided photographic evidence of the event:

He added another goal to his career history on Wednesday, netting the second goal of the game in Partizan’s 3-0 victory over Spartak Subotica in the cup.
According to Hatherall, the attacker’s contract with the club expires in December 2018 but a bid of £2 million is expected to force Partizan to sell up.
Another player on Wenger’s radar is Lorient defender Raphael Guerreiro, per TransferMarketWeb (h/t Aaron Flanagan of the Mirror).

The 22-year-old Portugal international plays mainly as a left-back but can also feature on the left of midfield.
Per Soccerway, Guerreiro has enjoyed another solid campaign with Lorient, chipping in with three goals in 31 league games to help cement Sylvain Ripoll’s side in mid-table. 
Entering the final 12 months of his contract, the full-back has reportedly caught the interest of the Premier League giants, who also face competition from Liverpool for his signature.
Per Jim Sheridan of the Sun, the defender would be available for as little as £6 million as Wenger looks to shore up the left side of his back line.
