Italian club sets £30m asking price for Arsenal & Manchester City target

Serie ‘A’ side Fiorentina want £30m for Arsenal and Manchester City transfer target Stevan Jovetic, according to talkSPORT.

And the report also claims that Juventus have joined the race for the Montenegrin star, and are considering a player-plus-cash deal for the forward. Speculation has mounted in recent weeks that Jovetic is to be a transfer priority for Arsenal this summer, with Manchester City also reportedly monitoring his progress.

The Montenegro international has revealed he would be interested in a move to the Emirates Stadium, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger attempted to sign him at the end of last season.

A renewed effort could be on the cards this summer – but the Gunners can expect stiffer competition after Jovetic’s stellar season in Florence.

The Fiorentina star has hit 12 goals this term, and his Serie ‘A’ club are desperate to keep hold of him. And the report claims Fiorentina would demand up to £30m for the player – a fee which would shatter Arsenal’s current transfer record.

Manchester City’s financial clout is larger than the Gunners, and they could be tempted to make a summer move after selling Mario Balotelli to AC Milan in the January transfer window.

But defending Serie ‘A’ champions Juventus have now also entered the picture, and the added interest could spark a bidding war for the player come the end of the season.
