Agent: Jovetic bidding war a possibility

Fiorentina starlet Steven Jovetic – reportedly wanted by Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United – could leave the Italian outfit at the end of the season, according to the player’s agent.

The 20-year-old is one of the rising stars in Serie A after an eye-catching start to the campaign.

Jovetic netted a brace against Liverpool in the Champions League earlier in the season and has attracted interest from a plethora of European clubs.

However, the forward's agent has denied that the Montenegro international will be going anywhere, until next summer at the earliest.

“Nothing will happen in the January transfer window,” Fali Ramdani told

“He will stay in Italy and will stay at Fiorentina. There is nothing to say about Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United or other links.

“Perhaps it is agents or people talking, but Jovetic is just concentrating on playing for Fiorentina, and in the summer we will see.”

‘Jo Jo’, as he is known to the Viola faithful, arrived in Tuscany for £9 million after racking up 19 goals in 33 appearances for Partizan Belgrade.

Jovetic made his debut for the national side at the tender age of 17 and Fiorentina could face a tough battle to hang on to their latest prized asset.

“A bidding war is a possibility,” Ramdani added.

“He likes the Premier League, so why not? He rates Serie A as well, and La Liga. They are all great leagues in Europe.”
