Widespread reports claim Gunners have made an offer for talented striker.
Newcastle vs Arsenal tickets are still available for the match at St James’ Park on 19 May!
The 23-year-old has been on fine form for the Florence outfit this season, bagging eight goals in 16 Serie A appearances – adding to the 14 he netted last season in just 27 outings.
Fiorentina have stressed in the past that the Montenegro international will not be allowed to leave the Stadio Artemi Franchi but the situation has since changed with the arrival from Villarreal of Italy international front man Giuseppe Rossi this month.
It is understood the Viola are willing to listen to offers of over £20m for the player and the in-form striker could be exactly what Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is after this month.
The Frenchman has hinted he is looking to sign two ‘exceptional’ players before the transfer window closes in a week, but links with Spanish strikers Adrian Lopez and David Villa, of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona respectively, seem spurious given the former’s price tag and the latter’s age.
Jovetic started his career as a left winger but has spent the vast majority of this season operating as a central striker, an area in which Wenger is known to be keen for reinforcement.
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.
