Fiorentina fans could drive Jovetic into Arsenal transfer

One of the players most likely to be coming to Arsenal during the transfer window this summer is the Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic, if you believe the media that is. If it is really the case that there is no smoke without fire then the choking swirl surrounding Florence in Italy could be good news for the Gunners.

Last summer, the Montenegrin striker decided to stay at Fiorentina and help them fight another season and try to get into the Champions League. They still could manage it, with one game left to play they are two points behind AC Milan, but it looks more likely that they will in the Europa League again.

Jovetic team mate slams Arsenal

Stevan Jovetic seemed to edge himself closer to a summer transfer to Arsenal yesterday, before helping Montenegro to fight back for a draw against England. Although he didn’t score for his country, Jovetic worked tirelessly and gave England all sorts of problems with his strength, technical ability and link up play.

His Fiorentina team mate Luca Toni, however, doesn’t think much of the idea of Jovetic signing for Arsenal. The 35-year old striker, who was in the Italian World Cup winning side of 2006, did little to endear himself to Arsenal fans after spouting off about us not being any better than Fiorentina in Serie A.
