Arsenal and Chelsea target reveals options open

Fiorentina forward Stevan JoveticStevan Jovetic says that he has plenty of options open to him ahead of the summer transfer window.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea are said to be tracking the Fiorentina attacker, who is widely regarded as one of the finest talents in Serie A.

The Premier League duo have been monitoring the Montenegro international for some time, and are expected to test the Viola’s willingness to keep hold of their star man for next season.

But, Jovetic says that a move to England is not a formality, and that he has plenty of offers from top clubs across the continent, with Juventus in particular very keen:

“I will evaluate the Premier League, which is a fantastic championship, as well as La Liga. I have proposals from each of them so let’s see what happens.” He is quoted by Sky Sports via La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Juventus have been trying to get me for over a year. They say they want me and that I am first on their list ahead of (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic, (Carlos) Tevez and (Gonzalo) Higuain. Who wouldn’t be flattered by that?

He did however confess that a move away from Fiorentina is on the cards, hinting that he has outgrown his current surroundings:

“Last summer president Andrea Della Valle told me to stay one more year and that at the end of the season, which is now, I would be allowed to leave if I wanted to.

“I’ve been at Fiorentina since 2008, it has been five intense seasons. I’m young and ambitious and it is normal to want to test myself somewhere else. I don’t see anything wrong with that.”

The 23-year-old is believed to be valued at around £20m, a figure that both Chelsea and Arsenal can match.
