Fiorentina insist Chelsea 'target' Stevan Jovetic will not be sold
Wednesday 16 May 2012
Fiorentina have no intention of selling Stevan Jovetic this summer despite reports in Italy linking the Montenegrin striker with a move to Chelsea.
The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent years.
Chelsea were reportedly keen to sign him in January, but no agreement was reached with the Serie A club.
"We want to build our future around Jovetic," Fiorentina club administrator Sandro Mencucci told Gazzetta dello Sport. "He has a contract until June 2016.
"Being a great player, it's normal that several clubs are monitoring him."
Jovetic, who joined Fiorentina from Partizan in 2008, scored 14 league goals in 27 league appearances for the Tuscan outfit this season.
