Chelsea have been linked with a £20m move for Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic, according to the Independent.

The Independent claim reports emanating from Italy have suggested the Blues are ready to launch a bid for the 22-year-old Montenegro international, as owner Roman Abramovich continues to overhaul his squad this summer.

Jovetic bagged 14 goals in 27 league games last season for Fiorentina and was linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in January.

Chelsea are set to renew their interest if reports are to be believed, but Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade is unaware of any talks for Jovetic, and insists the club want to keep hold of the striker but need assurances from the player of where his future lies.

“He (Jovetic) must tell us what his real intentions are,”

“We want to build our team around him. He has a contract until 2016 but he has to be the one to say what he wants.

“Either an offer that we cannot turn down arrives or nothing happens.

“There are talks about a club? Then they should make us aware of what it is.

“It’s not a case of being ruthless with Jovetic. He is a great person and a top player.

“(Fiorentina coach Vincenzo) Montella wants to coach him and build the team around him.”

Prade is quoted as saying in the Independent

    Just seen him in action once and although he scored a great goal in the match,i can’t assess him much. But i think our scouts should be right

    He is a nice player and he is fast and good at goal scoring,but i would have preferred hulk but in case Hulk signing falter,then Chelsea can go for him.
