Who’s Arsene Wenger’s No.1 summer transfer target? Well if you believe the Daily Mail it’s none other than Fiorentina striker Stefan Jovetic who is understood to be valued at around£25m.

The report claims Arsenal have ended their interest in David Villa after failing to land the Barcelona hitman in January and have now turned their attention to Jovetic as the boss looks to add to his strike-force in the summer.

The Mail suggest the 23-year-old has been on Wenger’s radar for some time with the boss understood to have extensively scouted him over the past 12 months and will continue to make checks throughout the second half of the season.

It’s also claimed by the newspaper that Arsene is prepared to break his transfer record to land the gifted striker with Fiorentina understood to value the Montenegro international at around £25m.

I said last week that if we failed to land Villa in January I doubted we’d go back for him in the summer and it appears that’s going to be the case. I expect Arsene to go for a younger target who’s more of a long-term solution and if the Mail are to be believed that man is Jovetic.

It’s easy to understand why Wenger would be after him. As well as his obvious talents, he’s 23-years-old so has got his best years ahead of him and I think he’d be a great addition to the squad if we can get him at the end of the season.

Would you like to see Jovetic signed in the summer, or did you have another target in mind? Get involved in the comments section below.

    Endless speculations,I won’t count on Wenger signing.I can not simply trust the man.I have lost every ounce of confidence in Wenger.I only see him signing if we can get an opposition or rival player to injure Giroud,Podoski and Walcot,even at that Wenger would sign a cheap,inexperience striker and tells you Gervinho,who was the best forward at AFCON is fit and able to play alone up front and his team has depth in all areas of play.Please discuss injuries and availabilities ahead of Sunderland’s game tomorrow and not transfers.

    I think he would be a good replacement for RVP, Giroud being a replacement for Chamakh. if this happens Gervihno will be 2nd choice to Podolski on the left wing and AOC 2nd choice to Walcott of the right wing and Giroud & Jovetic fighting for first place CF.
    * Also sign a better no2 keeper
    * And sign Hummels is Vermalean does leave (wishful thinking)

    Arsenal never discuss who they are going to buy let a lone spending 25 million on a player , i dont believe this is arsenal real concern right now (we missed the window.) if we are going to close the gap for fourth place (mr wengers biggest aim) we need to beat sunderland on saturday ,arsenals key players need to shine with a good chance of sneaking a win a draw at the worst sunderland will not be an easy team to play against dig deep arsenal

      I really wish Mr Wenger will just buy all this so called targets instead of buying them on the pages of news papers.
