As the latest Arsenal transfer news has it looking as though the signing of the England hero Jamie Vardy from Leicester City is dead in the water, Arsenal fans will be wondering where Arsene Wenger goes next in his search for more fire power to boost our chances of getting our hands on the Premier League trophy once again.
And no doubt the football media will soon be bombarding us with all sorts of Arsenal transfer rumours in the wake of Vardy´s decision to stay with his current club. I just hope that the one being reported by Sky Sports today about the former Man City forward Stevan Jovetic is way off the mark.
The news from Italy is that Arsenal have made ‘serious steps’ towards bringing Jovetic back to England but why on earth would Arsene Wenger think this was a good idea? I know that the Frenchman was linked with the player before he joined Man City from Fiorentina but everything that has happened since then has merely highlighted the fact that we dodged a bullet in missing out on his transfer.
Jovetic flopped in the EPL and since returning to Italy with Internazionale last summer at less than half what City paid for him he has not exactly set the world on fire either, smashing in a massive six league goals last season, which is why Inter are willing to sell. Does that really sound like the player Arsenal need to fire us to glory?
