Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic is in no rush to sign a new contract at the club amid reported interest from Chelsea and Arsenal over the summer according to

The 21-year-old Montenegro international has been heavily linked with a move to England, and the Serie A side are said to be keen to open negotiations with the talented youngster over a new deal to extend his stay with La Viola.

But Jovetic's agent Fali Ramadani has insisted that his client is not in contract discussions with Fiorentina, increasing speculation that he could be heading to Arsenal.

"He still has two years left to run on his present agreement, Ramadani told "I have no meetings set up with the club about this matter."


It has already been reported that Jovetic was the subject of a last-ditch bid from Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, who completed the signing of no less than five players on transfer deadline day, in an attempt to salvage Arsenal's season.

However, as rumours of a January switch to the Emirates Stadium continues to gather pace, Jovetic's representative reaffirmed his commitment to his current employers.

"Stevan has always said that he wants to remain at this club," he continued. "Therefore the desire to stay is already there.

"For now, the most important thing is that he does well on the field of play. There is plenty of time for everything else."
