Arsenal target Jovetic admits he wants to join Juventus
Arsenal have been dealt a blow in the race for Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic after he admitted he wants to join Juventus.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is believed to have made Jovetic a top target, but Serie A champions Juventus are also keen on the forward.
And despite talk that Arsenal are ready to get ahead in the battle by lodging a £25million, Jovetic says he would prefer to stay in Italy and play for Juve.
‘I gave my all to Fiorentina, but [coach] Antonio Conte could help me grow at Juventus,’ he said.
‘I have been at Fiorentina since 2008 for five very intense seasons. I feel I have given my all – and I have nothing left to give here.
‘Juve have been after me for a year, and they say they want me and that I’m a top target. Who wouldn’t be flattered by that? I want to move there so I can grow.’
Jovetic’s words will come as a huge blow to Arsenal, who are already struggling to land several of their other targets.
