According to the Metro, English giants Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic.
The Gunners, along with their domestic rival Manchester City, have been heavily linked with a move for Jovetic over the past few months and according to FIFA agent Di Domenico, Arsene Wenger and co. might have won the race for signature of the 23-year-old.
“...according to respected Fifa agent, Di Domenico, the Gunners have already agreed terms to bring the 23-year-old to north London, after he snubbed interest from Juventus.
‘Jovetic was among the possible options for Juventus, but my information is that the boy has already given the go ahead to move to Arsenal,’ said Di Comenico.
‘He seems fascinated by their project.’
Di Comenico is one of the most well-known football agents in Italy, and enjoys close links with Juventus, Fiorentina and Roma, with whom he has done business in recent years.”
Since the departure of Robin van Persie to Manchester United, Arsenal have lacked firepower in their striking department. Olivier Giroud might have been reliable in front of the goal but there is no able back-up for the France international.
Theo Walcott has been utilized in the centre-forward role but the England international is just not suited to play in that position. The arrival of Jovetic will hence, provide the North Londoners with the much-required prowess and depth upfront.
The Montenegro can play all along the attacking line and has been in scintillating form for Fiorentina this season, scoring 12 times and producing 4 assists in just 24 league appearances.
Jovetic’s pace and dribbling finesse will add a new dimension to Arsenal’s play, although the lad will still need to work on his crossing skills.
Nonetheless, it has to be noted that there has been no official confirmation regarding Jovetic’s possible transfer to Arsenal yet. With the summer transfer window approaching, rumour mill is in overdrive and therefore, it will be premature to make assumptions how Jovetic can change the wind at the Emirates before at-least either club confirm the deal.
