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.
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.
