Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool keeping close watch on Stevan Jovetic’s contract situation.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are on high alert after hearing Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic has delayed signing a new contract with the club.
The Montenegrin forward was the subject of a bid from Arsenal in the summer transfer window that was eventually rejected, and now it appears that he is considering his future.
“It’s not only Chelsea who want Jovetic, but Arsenal also,” former Fiorentina defender Roberto Galbiati told Italian television station Italia 7.
“Arsenal, on the last day of the summer transfer market, submitted a bid to Fiorentina but the club refused.”
Liverpool have watched Jovetic since he scored both goals against them in a UEFA Champions League match in 2009, and are thought to be considering their options for January.
The 21 year-old missed the whole of last season with a cruciate knee ligament injury, but is looking to get his career back on track.
Now Jovetic’s agent Fali Ramadani has revealed that with Fiorentina not in Europe this season, he is in no hurry to sign a new deal.
“He still has two years left to run on his present agreement,” Fali Ramadani told Calciomercato.it.
“I have no meetings set up with the club about this matter.”
The versatile forward – who is capable of playing up front, on the wing or in attacking midfield – is most often compared to Roberto Baggio, and would be an asset to any Premier League club.
