ARSENAL TO MISS OUT ON THEIR TOP SUMMER TARGET? by SE
Arsenal transfer dealings have angered many arsenal fans around the world for the past few seasons because of the board’s inability to stump up big cash for their transfer targets. Now Arsenal are in danger of losing their top transfer target once again this summer.
There has been some reports on the Daily Mail website which have claimed Arsenal are refusing to meet Fiorentina asking price of £25 million for Stevan Jovetic and are only willing to offer £20 million.
Jovetic seemed to be on his way to the Emirates Stadium this summer with Arsene Wenger open about his admiration for the player and determination to buy him. It is no secret that the gifted 23-year-old is the clubs number one target and we have been chasing his services for the last few months, with Wenger sending scouts out on numerous occasions to keep a close eye on the man.
Now the Daily Mail have suggested that even though the talks between both clubs started months there has been no agreement on the transfer fee. Fiorentina are holding out for £25 million but Arsenal are not ready to pay anything above £20 million. And long-term admirers Juventus are now ready to capitalise on Arsenal’s hesitancy to secure the 23-year-old’s services eventhough Fiorentina are hesitant to sell their priced asset to one of their arch rivals.
Italian newspaper La Stampa claims that Juve could tempt the Florence-based club into selling by offering to include strikers Fabio Quagliarella and Alessandro Matri in the deal. While The Express are reporting that Chelsea are ready to go head-to-head with Arsenal and juventus for £25 million Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic, with Jose Mourinho making the Montenegrin a primary transfer target.
Maybe Arsene Wenger is thinking that £25 million is to steep but if he believes that the player can make a difference then he should go for him regardless.
So,if Arsenal don’t get the deal done as soon as possible then we may lose our top summer target again due to the clubs bizzare bargaining policy and he might even land at our rival’s Chelsea.
