Arsenal Confident Of Landing £20m-Rated Striker As Wenger Eyes Four New Signings

Arsenal are growing increasingly confident of signing Fiorentina’s £20m-rated striker Stevan Jovetic as boss Arsene Wenger eyes four new signings this summer.

With the summer transfer window set to re-open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal are confident of landing Jovetic.

Stevan Jovetic

Arsenal are growing increasingly confident of signing Fiorentina’s £20m-rated striker Stevan Jovetic as boss Arsene Wenger eyes four new signings this summer, according to the Mirror.

We’ve been strongly linked with the Montenegrin international hitman in recent weeks with Wenger seemingly prepared to splash the cash on a top drawer striker ahead of next season.

The Mirror suggests Arsenal players have made it clear that Jovetic will be a Gooner this summer as long as we secure a top-four finish, with the boss confident of seeing off interest from Juventus to lure the 23-year-old to the Emirates.

We’re currently sitting in fourth position in the Premier League table with just two games left to play, so Champions League qualification is in our hands. The newspaper claims we’ve already opened talks with Fiorentina over Jovetic and the Italians will demand around £20m for the player.

That would represent a record signing for Arsenal but with the coffers boosted by recent commercial deals and the wage bill set to be slashed with the sale of several fringe players, it seems this summer could finally be the one where we see Wenger spend some serious money.

The Mirror claim as well as Jovetic, the boss has his eye on Hamburg goalkeeper Rene Adler, a holding midfielder and is weighing up a move for Borussia Dortmund right back Lukasz Piszczek – who’s seen as a potential replacement for Bacary Sagna.

If we could make these four signings this summer and keep together the existing first team players, we’ll have a well balanced squad going in to next season that would be capable of challenging for trophies.

    Hope we don’t sign him, averages 1 goal nearly every 4 games, not good enough, we need world class not second class

      He was a winger/AM/SS when he first joined Fiorentina, and he was very young, which is why his goals record wasn’t that great. He’s hit about 1 in 2 for the last 2 seasons, which is pretty good, again accounting for the fact he isn’t meant to be a pure goalscorer and it’s not even clear what position he would play were he to join Arsenal. IMO he is a world class talent, but not (yet) a world class goalscorer. He could get there, though. That said I’d rather sign Higuain if there’s any chance of that rumour being true, because he certainly is a goalscorer. Wouldn’t complain if Jovetic was signed though.

    If we qualify for champions league we need more than 4 signings. For me we would need a GK RB CB DM AM(or winger) and another striker and they need to be 6 top players. However we only need 4 players if we fail to qualify as then we could probably cope by retaining sagna and rosicky then only needing gk cb dm cf. Either way fabianski mannone squillaci djourou santos denilson arshavin park bendtner chamakh should all be moved on with question marks hanging over sagna and rosicky as mentioned. However if anyone was foolish enouvh to be intefested in diaby and gervinho I would rip their arm off and bring in replacements there too.

    “In fact any success has a source”me i think wenger should sign david villa &jovetic so that they boost the team towards the competition.

    Those of you saying “Wenger, sign Messi, sign Ronaldo, sign Falcao, sign Lewandozski”, tell me one good reason why any ambitious player would want to come to Arsenal. Thanks to Wenger and the greedy board, no serious player wants to come to Arsenal. I mean even Zaha said something about being a fan of Arsenal but it made more sense to go to ManU. Not to talk of our qualifying for Champions League. Spuds are fourth and we are fifth. I am not ready to bet even my lunch that we would qualify. We need Usmanov and Wenger has to go. Why cant he borrow a leaf from Sir Alex?
