Stevan Jovetic seems like an old friend here at the Football Transfer Tavern given we talk about his love affair with Arsenal so much and talkSPORT claim there may be a little problem with that transfer.
The striker has long been linked with a move to the Gunners and both parties seem more than happy to attempt to push something through as we get ever closer to the summer.
The issue now seems to be that Fiorentina are rather keen to if not hang onto one of their star assets, at least make sure that they get the largest amount possible for him and have now whacked a massive £30 million price tag on the Montenegrin’s head and given that not only are Juventus interested but Manchester City are too, this may only be set to rise.
Arsene Wenger is notorious for spending as little as possible yet this summer seems willing to flash whatever cash he can to guarantee a top four finish and possibly a good run in the Champions League next season. To do this he has identified Jovetic as a top target but may be deterred by the massive asking price on his shoulders. Given that it was only this week we claimed that Wenger was set to launch a £70 million raid on the Bundesliga it seems another £30 million on top of that may be going just a little too far.
Is Jovetic worth £30 million? Will he be Arsenal’s big signing of the summer like Cazorla before him? Rate this rumour below.
