Arsenal & Manchester City target admits Premier League temptation

Next Story

Arsenal and Manchester City transfer target Stevan Jovetic admits he's flattered to be linked with clubs from the Premier League.

The 23-year-old Montenegro international is set to face England in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night, with interested parties sure to have their eye on the talented Fiorentina forward.

And, ahead of the crucial clash, Jovetic has revealed that he'd be interested in leaving Serie 'A' life behind for a run in one of world football's strongest divisions.

"It sure is nice when you are interesting big clubs like Arsenal and Manchester City," he told the Daily Star.

"It feels good because the English game currently has probably the strongest league in the world. I'm very comfortable in Italy but the Premier League is at the top of the football world - and perhaps the best.

"We will see what happens in the future."

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini isn't short of options up-front, with Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko all available at the Etihad Stadium.

However, Mario Balotelli's exit in the January transfer window has created a potential space in attack, and Jovetic could be the man to fill the mercurial Italian's boots.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have far less options at their disposal, with Olivier Giroud the only out-an-out striker available to manager Arsene Wenger.

Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski can also play through the middle for the Gunners, but Jovetic would add an extra dimension to the attack at the Emirates Stadium.
