TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Target Cools Speculation
Fiorentina star Stevan Jovetic has played down speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea.
The Blues had been linked with the Montenegro international, while Manchester City and Barcelona have also been linked with the 21-year-old. Despite the interest the forward was quick to refute the reports. Jovetic told Sky Italia:
“I read in the newspaper that many clubs are interested, including Manchester City, Barcelona and Chelsea.
“I don’t know if any of it is true, but I’m always focused on Fiorentina. When I get the offers and the time comes for these things, we’ll think about it.
“Meanwhile, I am thinking of Fiorentina. I still have a two-year contract and we are also talking about an extension of the contract.”
Ramadani, Jovetic’s agent, added of Chelsea’s reported interest:
“These are just rumours that I don’t want to comment on. Our priority is to meet with the leaders at Fiorentina.
“I will be in Florence on Sunday to watch the Fiorentina versus Lazio game and then I’ll meet with Fiorentina’s management.
“Jovetic is having a great time in Florence, he’s reiterated that more than once.”
