Chelsea Set to Continue Spending Spree with £25m Serie A Attacker Signing

Fiorentina youngster set to seal Stamford Bridge move.

Chelsea are edging closer to a deal for Fiorentina and Montenegro striker Stevan Jovetic.
The Viola were not impressed with a £20million offer from the Blues but Italian newspaper La Gazetta dello Sport believes £25m is enough to secure the forward.
Jovetic reportedly has a buy-out clause in his contract to that value which the bid would trigger.

Having already spend upwards of £37m to land Eden Hazard and Marko Marin it appears that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is not finished splashing the cash. With Roberto Di Matteo now on board as the permanent successor to Andre Villas-Boas it may well prove that a number of other new signings are also heading for Stamford Bridge.

The West London side have been linked with Fiorentina youngster Steven Jovetic for some time but now it seems he is nearing a move to the Champions League holders.

Chelsea appear to be moving towards a more youthful transfer policy as they look to reverse the ageing nature of their squad. The Montenegrin international has just completed his fourth season at Fiorentina and notched up 14 goals from 27 appearances and was chiefly used in an attacking midfield role just behind the strikers.

Having allowed Jose Bosingwa, Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou to leave and with reports that Florent Malouda could be on his way to Brazil, it seems that Di Matteo and Abramovich are looking to re-shuffle the Blues squad in the knowledge that whilst Chelsea did secure their maiden Champions League triumph they did find themselves finishing the Premier League season in sixth spot and falling further off the title chasing pack.
