Manchester United & Chelsea tipped to pursue Serie ‘A’ striker

Next Story

Manchester United and Chelsea are among the Premier League clubs tipped to renew their interest in Stevan Jovetic during the summer transfer window.

The Daily Star claims both clubs, as well as Arsenal, could be interested in bringing the player to the Premier League after Fiorentina admitted they were open to selling the Montenegro international.

"From the financial perspective, we're not excluding any team," said Fiorentina chief executive Sandro Menucci when discussing the possibility of selling Jovetic.

Serie ‘A’ rivals Juventus have been linked with a move, but with Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente arriving in Turin, that now seems unlikely. Real Madrid are another interested party.

Jovetic has plenty to offer the English suitors, who have thus far been frustrated in their efforts to sign key attackers.

New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has so far been thwarted in his efforts to lure Edinson Cavani to Stamford Bridge, whilst Radamel Falcao opted for Monaco instead of west London last month.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are yet to secure the services of Gonzalo Higuain after a lengthy courtship, and Arsene Wenger had no time to replace Robin Van Persie at the Emirates Stadium last summer after his Emirates Stadium exit.

The paper claims Manchester United would consider Jovetic if Wayne Rooney were to leave Old Trafford, but the Red Devils’ hitman is set to hold talks with David Moyes before any decision on his future is made.
