Arsenal are pondering a move to sign Stevan Jovetic from Inter Milan this summer, say reports

Arsenal are pondering a surprise move to sign former Manchester City star Stevan Jovetic from Inter Milan this summer, according to reports in Italy.

The Gunners have been linked with a host of new players in recent weeks as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his squad ahead of next season.

Arsenal have tabled a £20m bid to bring Jamie Vardy to Emirates Stadium but the striker is stalling on making a decision about whether he wants to move to north London.

Vardy is currently on England duty at Euro 2016 and appears to be in no rush to make a decision.

Now, Corriere dello Sport in Italy is reporting that Arsenal are pondering making a move for Jovetic to bolster their front line.

The same report goes on to say that former Manchester City man Jovetic would be keen on a move back to the Premier League.
