Gunners are in urgent need of more firepower in attack.
Premier League leaders Arsenal could now make a late move for out-of-favour Juventus front man Mirko Vucinic before the January transfer window closes on Friday after learning that the player is now training on his own in Turin, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The north London club have been heavily linked with making a move for the experienced Montenegro international in the past few weeks as Gunners head coach Arsene Wenger looks to bring in more reinforcements up front to help support overworked striker Olivier Giroud in the second half of the campaign.
However, the one major sticking point to a successful deal for the 30-year-old taking place remains the Serie A champions’ insistence on any interested suitor in the player forking out a fee of £8m.
But with the attacker now training by himself, Arsenal may now be able to get Vucinic on a six-month loan deal.
“Vucinic spoke with [manager Antonio] Conte and they have agreed he will train apart in these last days of the transfer market because he is involved in some possible negotiations,”said his agent Alessandro Lucci.
“But I want to say that Mirko has never asked to be sold.”
