Premier League suitors have been given a clear indication that Stevan Jovetic is available for transfer this summer.

A number of English sides have reportedly shown an interest in the player in the past, with Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas linked with a move as recently as two days ago.

The Daily Mail claimed Fiorentina were braced to receive a £21 million offer from the Blues for their prized asset, with team manager Vincenzo Guerini admitting an ‘indecent proposal’ would be impossible to reject.

“Our intention is to build the team around him, but today the word untransferable doesn't exist,” said Guerini.

“If an indecent proposal were made, and it is possible that one will arrive, then we would take that into consideration. I'm sure that Jovetic will turn into a top player.”

A source close to the club has since gone on to suggest that the Viola’s owners, the Della Valle family, would consider letting the player leave for €30 million.

"The Della Valles are tired and are thinking of what to do. And €30m is an important figure for anybody," said the source.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has also shown an interest in ‘Jo-Jo’ in the past, with the Frenchman considering a move for the player back in October as he looked to shuffle the attacking pack at the Emirates Stadium.

As for Liverpool, they also hold a long-standing interest in the player, with Jovetic’s agent Fali Ramadani confirming back in March that the Reds had made an approach the previous summer.

They’ve been linked with a move on several occasions since that time.
