Arsenal face missing out on Fiorentina attacker Stevan Jovetic.

The Daily Star Sunday says in a major blow to the north Londoners it now seems Jovetic – who has a £25million buy-out clause in his Fiorentina contract – will snub them in favour of boyhood idols and Italian champions Juventus.

A source close to Jovetic revealed: “Arsenal may think they’re going to sign Stevan but it’s very unlikely. He loves living and playing in Italy and prefers Juve.

“For most people in Montenegro, Serie A is the biggest league in football – and more important to them than the English Premier League.”
