Inter Milan have reportedly agreed terms with Juventus to sign Mirko Vucinic despite Arsenal being heavily linked with a January bid for the forward last week.

The 30-year-old has started just four Serie A games this season and despite scoring two goals in his limited opportunities Juventus are desperately trying to sell him during this transfer window to recoup some money needed to reinvest in the squad.

Tottenham and Arsenal have both linked with the striker and transfer expert Gianluca Dimarzio was adamant the Gunners were going to hold talks in London with Vucinic's agent on Monday.

However, Italian newspaper La Gazzetta Dello Sport report that Vucinic will finally join Inter as the Serie A giants have already agreed terms with Juventus to close the deal.

The Italian newspaper add that the only details yet to be agreed are personal terms, but states Vucinic is prepared to move to Italy while Chelsea target Fredy Guarin will move to Antonio Conte's side as part of the deal.

According to reports, Arsenal have tried to sign Vucinic but the club's insistence on a loan deal rather than a permanent move ended the Gunners' hopes, with Juventus looking to cut their ties with the forward.

Meanwhile, Wenger recently revealed he is in the market looking for a striker to cover Theo Walcott's long-term injury although he denied that Vucinic was his main target.

"We are looking at potential possibilities for us to get someone in, but we are not especially in for Vucinic. Some people have visual capacities that I don't have. We are not on any special case. I would love to announce something that would excite you and me, but I don't have the possibility to do it."

Real Madrid youngster Alvaro Morada have also been linked with a move to Arsenal but recently the striker ruled out the chance of leaving La Liga this January.
