According to The Daily Mirror, Arsene Wenger has decided that Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic as his top priority target in Summer transfer window. With fears of not qualifying for the champions league creeping in, Arsenal board are finally ready to cash out on ready-made stars.
Even though rumors from Spain suggest that Arsenal will try again to sign David Villa from Barcelona, Jovetic would be a much more ideal for long term as he is just 23 and already looks to be a class act for Fiorentina in Seria A. Jovetic is a skilful forward who can also play in multiple forward positions.
But the problem is The Montenegro international would not come cheap and will cost at least 20 million pounds. Arsenal have a habit of buying players with the money got from selling their stars. But this time they cannot afford to lose any more of their important players.
So their plan is to reduce their wage bill by selling or loaning out players who are not needed for the squad. Arsenal are desperate to sell Andrey Arshavin, Sebastien Squillaci and also other players who are on loan in order to fund a move for Jovetic.
