Arsenal transfers: ‘Arsene Wenger not interested in Stevan Jovetic’
Arsenal transfers: Gunners not interested in signing Steven Jovetic this summer, according to Fiorentina's sporting director
Arsenal are not interested in signing Steven Jovetic this summer, according to Fiorentina sporting director Daniel Prade.
The Gunners have been linked with a £24.5m bid for the highly-rated 23-year-old Montenegro forward in recent weeks but Prade insists that he has had no contact from the north Londoners.
“The way I see it, this interest [in Jovetic] is non-existent,” Prade told Rai Sport.
“I have not had any contact with them at all. I don’t think Arsene Wenger is interested in the boy.”
Prade’s comments come after the Serie A club’s president Andrea Della Valle stressed that they would not be selling the striker on the cheap.
“Jovetic must understand his future, make the right choice,” said Della Valle. “The important thing is that, if he does leave, we compensate for his sale by bringing in suitable replacements.”
Jovetic has scored 13 goals and made five assists in 31 Serie A appearances for Fiorentina this season.
