Arsene Wenger is to welcome in the Juventus striker on a loan deal to help strengthen his attacking options for the rest of the current campaign with the Montenegro international due to have a medical at the North London club today.

The 30 year old forward had looked close to securing a move to Inter Milan as part of a swap deal that would have seen Colombian Fredy Guarin move in the opposite direction but the deal stalled and Vucinic is still looking for a move away from his Turin side in search of regular first team football.

Vucinic finished last season as Juventus’s joint top scorer in Serie A action, scoring 14 goals in all competitions, but the arrival of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente, from Man City and Athletic Bilbao respectively, last summer have severely restricted his involvement in Antonio Conte’s plans.

The former AS Roma man has started just four Serie A matches this term and is seen by Wenger as a replacement for injured England man Theo Walcott and a marksman who can ably support Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Nicklas Bendtner in the Arsenal attack.
