Chelsea closing in on Stevan Jovetic

28 June 2012 09:05
According to the Daily Star, Chelsea are moving closer to agreeing a deal with Fiorentina for Stevan Jovetic. 

Chelsea have had a £20million bid rejected earlier this month but according to La Gazetta dello Sport but they believe a fee of £25m would be enough to secure the 22-year-old's signature. If Chelsea decide on lodging a £25m bid it would meet Stevan's buy-out clause in his contract. 

Fiorentina did issue a hands-off warning last week but the move looks a lot closer now as Chelsea are planning to meet his release fee. Juventus and Napoli are also interested in the Montenegro international but a move away from Serie A looks more tempting for the youngster.
