Chelsea are ready to pay the £25million asking price for Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic and could pip Arsenal to his signature, according to the Express.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has put the Montenegro ace at the top of his wanted list as he looks to bring in a new striker but he has so far been unable to wrap up a deal.
Reports have claimed that Wenger is unwilling to match Fiorentina’s valuation of the player and now run the risk of losing out to either Chelsea or Juventus.
Jose Mourinho is poised to return as Chelsea boss in the coming weeks and it is claimed one of his first jobs will be to wrap up a deal for Jovetic and take him from under the noses of Arsenal.
Radamel Falcao is no longer on the market after opting to join Monaco and, with Napoli’s Edinson Cavani pricing himself out of a move, quality strikers could be hard to come by this summer.
Hence Chelsea’s efforts to land Jovetic and Wenger may have to push the boat out to have any chance of landing his man.
