Arsenal Transfer News: Gunners Target May Not Prefer to Leave At All

Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic is expected to be one of the sought after players in the summer transfer window and it is not surprising to see the 23-year-old linked with several clubs like Arsenal. He is capable of playing as a striker or just behind in the hole. Despite his injury problems throughout the campaign, Jovetic managed to score 13 goals for Fiorentina last season.

This helped Fiorentina almost steal a Champions League place from the grasp of AC Milan in the final few weeks of the campaign.

It is widely thought that Arsenal are the favourites to secure his signature, but in an interesting development, Jovetic’s agent has said to Sky Sports that his client would rather prefer to stay in Italy. This would pave a move towards Juventus, who have also been credited with an interest in the player.

“Stevan would prefer to remain in Serie A rather than moving to a new country,” said Jovetic’s agent.

Juventus have an extremely strong midfield, but they are not blessed with the attacking line-up that Antonio Conte demands in order to be successful in Europe.

Jovetic will be a welcome addition to the Juventus side, who have won the league title in the last two seasons.

Arsenal also need the presence of another forward especially due to the pressure on the shoulders of Oliver Giroud and Lukas Podolski. Fiorentina are unlikely to resist the advances of other clubs provided their valuation is met.

This was confirmed by manager Vincenzo Montella, who said that it would be difficult to keep Jovetic at the club beyond the summer.

Montella, though, has said that the club was not prepared for news that David Pizarro is looking for a transfer away from Fiorentina. The 33-year-old has been at the club for just under a year, and Montella has claimed that he would love to keep him at the club.

    Im tired of hearing rumours/gossips about Arsenal signing Jovetic, Higuain, Williams, Benteke, Julio Ceasar & co! I want to see some paper work been signed and completed. Let Arsene Wenger be informed that we are tired of not winning silverware. Champions League qualification IS NOT a TROPHY! Sign quality players to make us competitors for major silverware!

    i believe its nt cmpulsory we sign jovetic cos i dnt see a reason why dis so called flores should be giving us headache all d tym just bcos of jovetic who is nt even better than giroud n podolski. A player that scored 13 league goal is nt the kind of player we should be worrying over, to me i dnt even lyk to see him in our red n white nxt season.

    Pls we need jovetic nd nt higuain. People lyk jovetic can play alongside cazola nd rosicky. I would love 2 c jovetic, williams, m’villa, fabregas nd benteke…. Pls do dis wenger. We r fed up of 4th place every season we need trophies

    @victor, i dont think u current at all and that’s why you mentioned m’villa who is already at rubin kazan. I will prefer Benteke over Jovetic because he has epl experience with good goal record, cheaper than Jovetic and has expressed his desire to play for us. Jovetic may come and become one of ligue 1 flop we already have.
