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.

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.

    Go for both – higuain to replace chamakh bendtner and park. Whilst jovetic can replace arshavin gervinho and santos. The 6 wages would be around double that of the whilst we could probably raise about half the fees with the proceeds of that sale. Giving us walcott podolski cazorla giroud higuain and jovetc fighting for 3 places. Chamberlain wilshire arteta ramsey coquelin and ramsey could compete for the 3 midfield roles though I would like to see denilson and diaby sold and replaced with gonalons.

    I think we should go for both. Besides, if reports are to be believed Fiorentina are willing to accept a slightly lower fee (around 19M) from Arsenal just so that he doesn’t go to Juventus. Also, Jovetic will need a bit of time before he can become our 20+ goal a season player. Higuain comes with instant goals. And imagine a front 3 of Jovetic-Higuain-Walcott. Terror.

    We should also bring in a DM (Etienne Capoue/Victor Wanyama, a CB (Hummels/Yanga-Mbiwa/Adil Rami/Williams) and a keeper (Caesar/Mignolet/Begovic. Also I think we need a winger (Ben arfa/Jesus Navas/Arda Turan/Di Maria).

    Then we should get rid of Denilson, Santos, Bendtner, Diaby, Gervinho, Chamakh, Park, Arshavin, Squillaci

    I read somewhere that Real are considering getting rid of Di Maria and have lowered his price to about 12-15M. If this true, Wenger should snap him up quickly.

    i would prefer both, HIGUEN and JOVETIC… are simply my best choice right candidate to fill the missing void…probability it will simply do arsenal good if they eventually sign both….that shows that we are up to the contest next season….we really need players this terms….pls wenger think properly

    Players we need are Jovetic(ST),Loic Remy 2nd(ST),isco or Ben Arfa(LFW),fellaini(DM),julio caesar(GK),Micah richard or yanga mbiwa(RB/CB)utility that can play both positions just incase sagna is sold too..Dispose of Denilson, Santos, Bendtner, Diaby, Gervinho, Chamakh, Park, Arshavin, Squillaci..money from sales of dead woods can make up enough money plus the 70million available to acquire all these player, roughly 90million for all players. Wishful thinking cos I know wenger wld rather hang himself than do that

    Higuain is finished goods. He shouldn’t be brought to the Emirates even on a free.

    get rid of squillaci,santos,daiby,fabianski,gervinho,park,ashravin,charmakh,bendtner,denilson and maybe podolski….sign up…jovetic,higuian,ben arfa,wanyama,ashley Williams,begovic…give the armband either to Williams or cazorla…cause vermalen has never been the same player since he took over…if wenger could pull this off and wisely rotate his squad then with the team spirit this team had in our last ten games we should expect more than one trophy this season…but we all know wenger
