Ok, so yesterday I predicted that Arsenal would announce a singing. Oops. I may be a day or so behind because it appears that the move of Stevan Jovetic from Fiorentina is imminent.
The Metro says that Jovetic’s agent is reportedly in London negotiating a £24.5million deal.
Jovetic’s agent, Fali Ramadani, is thrashing out terms with Arsenal in London after an offer was lodged, according to Italian media group Mediaset, and will report back to the 23-year-old with the Gunners’ proposal.
Fiorentina’s failure to make CL football – along with Arsenal’s qualification – as well as the club’s reluctance to sell Jovetic to their rivals Juventus seems to make this a done deal.
Jovetic is apparently keen to move to London, Wenger is clearly a fan, so now it all seem to down to the price.
Arsenal fans have ten days left before season ticket renewals finish and I would be astounded if there wasn’t one major signature before then, almost certainly this week. It happened last year with Podolski signed, sealed and delivered before the renewals deadline. Bet it happens again!
The big question for Arsenal fans though is that will Jovetic’s signature mean that the Gunners don’t go after other names that the club have been linked with like Higuain and maybe even Rooney.
Who do you want to sign for the Gunners? Vote here.
