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.
Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is also on the look-out for a front man to replace Didier Drogba, who left the club to join Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua, and Jovetic is one of several names being linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.
