Stevan Jovetic told to snub Manchester City and Arsenal

Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic could snub offers from Manchester City and Arsenal on the advice of international teammate Mirko Vucinic.

TalkSPORT has reported that both Roberto Mancini and Arsene Wenger are interested in 23-year-old Jovetic, but Juventus forward Vucinic has urged his Montenegrin colleague to join him in Turin and reject a move to the Premier League.

Montenegro captain Vucinic told Italian newspaper Tuttosport: "Jovetic and I play close together in the national side and we often switch positions with each other. I'd like to do that at Juve as he is a fellow countryman and is a really strong player."

Vucinic went on to declare he would also turn down a move to England, should an offer come up.

"My future? I don't look at it," he said. "I live one day at a time, but I'm happy in Turin. England? I'm not interested."

Jovetic has 11 league goals in 21 appearances this term, a tally that has pushed Fiorentina up to sixth in Serie A, and he has attracted attention from the Premier League big boys.

England fans will get a closer look at Jovetic and Vucinic when Montenegro host Roy Hodgson's side in a World Cup qualifier on 26th March. Montenegro lead the group on 10 points after four games, with the Three Lions in second on eight.
