Stevan Jovetic: Heading back to the Premier League?

Arsenal have identified Inter Milan striker Stevan Jovetic as their next transfer target with Jamie Vardy set to stay with Leicester.

Arsene Wenger revealed on Japanese television that he expects Vardy to turn down a move to the Emirates after England’s participation at Euro 2016 is over, and Italian outlet Sport Mediaset believe the Gunners have already moved on to other strikers to complement Olivier Giroud.

Jovetic signed a four-year deal with Inter Milan back in July 2015, scoring eight goals in 30 appearances for the Nerazzurri. It is thought it will take a bid of £11.5million for the Serie A outfit to allow the unwanted striker to move on.

Russian side Spartak Moscow are also said to be interested in the forward, who has 16 goals in 40 caps for Montenegro.
