Jovetic in high demand with Turin giants ready to make their move.
Serie A champions Juventus are preparing a money-plus-player exchange deal for Fiorentina ace Stevan Jovetic, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Montenegrin striker has been heavily linked with a move away from Florence this summer, with Premier League side Arsenal also taking a keen interest in developments surrounding his future.
Having missed out on Champions League football on the last day of the season to rivals Milan, the Viola will be playing in the Europa League next season and they may have to do so without one of their best players.
Despite the 23-year-old stating his desire to remain at the club as they continue to build one of the most exciting projects in Italy under the stewardship of Vincenzo Montella, it hasn’t prevented rumours linking him with a switch elsewhere.
Early reports suggested that Juventus would be willing to offer him the much heralded No.10 shirt should he join, while the famous pink paper now speculates that a meeting between the club and player’s agent went well.
It is believed that the Bianconeri are willing to offer €18m plus Mauricio Isla, and one of Sebastian Giovinco, Alessandro Matri, Fabio Quagliarella or Luca Marrone, as reported by football-italia.net.
Arsene Wenger has been a vocal fan of the Fiorentina star, and it remains to be seen whether Juve’s advances will spur the French tactician into action as he bids to take Jovetic to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
