Fiorentina have told interested parties it will take an offer in the region of €30m (£23.8m) to sign striker Stevan Jovetic, according to Sky Sports News.

The report claims the highly-rated 22-year-old is being tracked by London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea, as well as several top clubs throughout Europe including Serie A champions Juventus.

Jovetic has become one of the most wanted players in Europe after another fine season with Fiorentina, where he scored 14 goals in 27 appearances.

The Italians are reluctant to part ways with one of their prized assets but sporting director Daniele Prade has admitted every player has his price, and claims the club have an agreement with the player that they will listen to offers of €30m (£23.8m):

“Since the start of the season we have said that we are not selling Jovetic,”

“There is, however, an agreement with the player that (should we get an offer) above a certain figure, we will sit down and evaluate the offer.

“So far we have not received an offer for the player.

“He is a top player and we will only consider offers above 30million euros.

“He has the potential to become a player like (Roma icon) Francesco Totti.”

Prade is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is drawing up a short list of potential replacements for striker Robin van Persie, who’s faces an uncertain future at the Emirates, and Jovetic is believed to be one of the names under consideration.

    Come on, Arsenal have already spent almost 30m and as an Arsenal fan I know that they will not spend any more this summer until they have recouped what the spent seeling the unwanted players and RvP. Dread the thought of not making a profit on tranfers. The club is a player market, buy and sell on at a profit.

    Ok.. this is where Usmanov is needed. Sell deadwood and bring in a few quality replacements, promote youngsters and Arsenal are still strong.
