Jovetic in no rush over new contract

Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic is in no rush to sign a new contract at the club amid reported interest from Chelsea and Arsenal over the summer.

Jovetic, 21, missed the entirety of last season due to cruciate knee ligament damage but has made his priority getting back to full fitness rather than committing his future to the club.

The Montenegro international was the subject of a last-ditch bid from Arsenal this summer according to Fiorentina football advisor Roberto Galbiati, and his agent, Fali Ramadani, has insisted that he is not in talks over a new deal at La Viola.

"He still has two years left to run on his present agreement. I have no meetings set up with the club about this matter,'' he told

"Stevan has always said that he wants to remain at this club, therefore the desire to stay is already there. For now, the most important thing is that he does well on the field of play. There is plenty of time for everything else."
