Arsenal are reportedly confident of securing the signature of Stevan Jovetic from Fiorentina for less than £20m.

Arsenal have reportedly stepped up negotiations with Fiorentina over signing striker Stevan Jovetic this summer.

The Gunners, who have been linked with the 23-year-old for some time, are thought to have held preliminary talks with the Italian club a number of weeks ago.

It has since emerged that the Premier League outfit are confident of securing Jovetic's signature for less than £20m, despite Fiorentina stating that they want between £25m and £30m for the forward, according to Goal.com.

Reports have claimed that Arsenal will start the bidding at £17m when the summer window opens on May 20.
