The Montenegro international is currently enjoying yet another impressive campaign in front of goal for the Serie A outfit, having fond the back of the net on eight occasions in just 16 matches, to go along with his impressive 14 goals in 27 appearances for the Florence-based club last season.
Fiorentina have in the recent past been reluctant to allow the centre forward to talk to potential suitors, however, that situation has since changed with the arrival from Villarreal of Italy international front man Giuseppe Rossi at the Stadio Artemi Franchi.
And, Rossi’s presence at Fiorentina now means that the Serie A club are willing to listen to offers for the player that match their £20 million valuation, a figure Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly happy to pay for an in-form striker whose goals could ultimately prove the difference between the North Londoners finishing in the top four of the Premier League this season, and with it a lucrative place in the Champions League, and them not.
The Gunners currently lie in a lowly sixth position in the top flight, seven points behind north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in fourth, although they do have a game in hand on all of the sides above them in the table.
