Daily Express has learned that Chelsea are looking to hijack Arsenal’s move for Fiorentina star Stevan Jovetic.
The Gunners were believed to be leading the chase for the Montenegrin forward, but their Premier League rivals seem to be keen as well.
Jose Mourinho, who is set to return at Stamford Bridge, has instructed the club chiefs to launch an assault on Jovetic.
The Special One believes that the 23-year-old would add an extra dimension to Chelsea attack and he is prepared to enter a real bidding war with Arsenal.
Juventus, too, have been attempting to lure the striker to Turin, but they seem to have given up on the player as Fiorentina chiefs are adamant they won’t be selling their prized asset to their fierce rivals.
Stevan Jovetic has been showing a lot of potential over the last couple of years, scoring 27 goals in 58 Serie A matches in the last two seasons.
