Analysing the Transfer Gossip – 12th July: Part One

12 Jul 2013, 16:08 IST

As we move into the off-season an unprecedented amount of managerial movement around Europe will surely see an already frantic transfer market go in to overdrive.

This will give plenty of opportunities for transfer rumour and gossip. So how much of it is realistic?

Manchester City are close to beating off competition from Chelsea for Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic, 22, but will have to pay the £30m asking price.

Stevan Jovetic

What’s the story? It seems like most others clubs are dropping out of the race for Jovetic now, although I wouldn’t put it past Arsenal getting back involved at some stage. If they’re willing to bid £30m on Suarez they obviously have it there.

Does it make sense? Yes, but it’s unknown how high up the priority list he was at the start of the summer. It would mean Aguero playing as the lone striker which although not a bad thing, doesn’t sound like what City had in mind when bidding for Cavani.

Is the price right? £30m is a lot for a player who doesn’t necessarily look like a 20 goal man, however, Jovetic has all the skill and creativity that City need to fashion more chances.

Will it happen? 8/10 – City certainly seem to be in pole position at the moment, but then, Arsenal were last month.
