Arsenal target Jovetic flattered by Juventus interest

The Montenegrin is pleased to have caught the attention of the Serie A champions but the Premier League side remain in pole position to sign the attacker from Fiorentina
Stevan Jovetic has admitted that he feels honoured to be linked with Juventus, even though he is expected to leave Fiorentina for Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

The Premier League side are in advanced talks with Fiorentina over the forward, as revealed by, and are hopeful of getting their man for a transfer fee of less than £20 million, though the Italian side want £25-£30m.

The Montenegro international was close to joining the Bianconeri at the start of the 2012-13 campaign, but the Scudetto holders eventually failed to reach an agreement with his club over a transfer fee.

Juve's interest in the 23-year-old has since slightly cooled due to his ongoing injury problems this term, but the Old Lady are still closely monitoring his situation at Fiorentina, much to the delight of the player himself.

"It is very satisfying that a club like Juventus are interested in signing me," the attacker told Tuttosport.

"I feel honoured that they are keeping tabs on me."

However, a move to Juventus in the summer transfer window seems unlikely with the Gunners leading the race for Jovetic's signature.
