Jovetic Agent In London For Talks After Arsenal Table £24.5m Offer
The agent of Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic has flown to London to hold talks with Arsenal after the Gunners submitted a £24.5million bid for the hitman.
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 believed to have tabled an offer for Stevan Jovetic.
Some interesting news regarding Arsenal’s interest in Stevan Jovetic with the Metro one of several news outlets to report that the Gunners have entered negotiations with the striker’s agent after submitting a £24.5m bid.
We’ve been heavily linked with the Fiorentina hitman in recent months with Arsene Wenger believed to be looking to bring in a world-class striker this summer and is appears the boss has made an early move to try and land Jovetic.
The report claims the players agent, Fali Ramadani, has flown to London to hold talks over a proposed £24.5m move to north London, with Fiorentina understood to be willing to cash in after narrowly missing out on Champions League qualification on the final day of the Serie A season.
Jovetic has enjoyed another excellent season in Italy and while the Metro suggest champions Juventus are also keen on the 23-year-old, Fiorentina would rather sell to Arsenal than a domestic rival making a move to the Emirates Stadium a distinct possibility this summer.
The Telegraph reported earlier today that Arsenal were lining-up a £19m move for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain, and while it’s unlikely Wenger will look to sign both the Argentine and Jovetic this summer, being linked with such names makes it an exciting time to be a Gooner and it’s shaping up to be a promising summer.
My personal preference would be Higuain but I’d love to see either him or Jovetic come to the club and if we’re going to sign a world-class striker this summer, it appear they are the two most likely candidates.
