Stevan Jovetic is not interested in a move to Arsenal and wants to stay in Italy, according to the Fiorentina midfielder’s agent Fali Ramadani.

The Montenegro international has been heavily linked with a move to the Gunners, who are looking to strengthen their squad after edging to a fourth-place finish this season.

Jovetic, who is believed to be valued at around £24.5m by La Viola, has scored 13 goals and made five assists in 31 Serie A appearances – but is not looking to leave Italy.

“Stevan prefers to stay in Italy rather than move away,” said Jovetic’s agent Ramadani.

On Wednesday, Fiorentina sporting director Daniel Prade insisted the club have not been in contact with Arsenal over a possible deal for Jovetic.

“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.”

Newly-crowned Serie A champions Juventus are believed to be leading the race to sign the Montenegro star in the summer transfer window.
