Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are finally breathing a sigh of relief as it is claimed by the Daily Mail that Arsene Wenger is finally set to step his game up when it comes to the transfer market and land his top target in the process.
After hearing that Chelsea were considering a bid for his top target Stevan Jovetic, the manager decided to begin talks with Fiorentina over a potential move to avoid losing out should he wait any longer. It has long been thought that the 23-year-old forward was high on the transfer wishlist for Wenger this summer and now it seems that he will stop at nothing to land the Montenegrin forward and pip Chelsea to the post to boot.
Jovetic has amassed a huge amount of admirers and given his form for the Viola that is hardly a shock. Now it seems that a £25 million deal could be in the offing with the Frenchman willing to spend a big portion of his £70 million summer budget on landing the forward.
Not only are Chelsea considering a move for the player but Manchester City and Italian giants Juventus are also sniffing around meaning that Wenger knows he simply must act early and agree terms with the player before anyone else does.
Will Arsenal get their main transfer target in the summer? Rate this rumour below.
