Here at the Football Transfer Tavern pints have been placed down as the Daily Mail claim Arsenal have one transfer target for the summer – Stevan Jovetic and they are prepared to smash their transfer record for him.
Of course Wenger is hardly known for his big spending and so this is not exactly like City claiming the same thing, yet the 23 year old is the top target at the Emirates this summer and Wenger will stop at nothing to land him.
Scouts have been to watch the Fiorentina striker almost each game as the interest in Jovetic steps up and a £20 million plus bid ready to be sanctioned by the club. This of course breaks the £15 million paid for flop Arshavin yet Wenger is willing to act.
The Frenchman has a £70 million kitty to spend in the summer and in order to land the coveted striker may even pay more than the asking price. However should Wenger’s version of a trophy -top four qualification – fail to materialise then funds available may lessen and a move may be out of the question.
