Blues fail with £14m bid for Stevan Jovetic
Chelsea have had an offer for Fiorentina star Stevan Jovetic rejected. The Italian giants have slapped a £20m asking price for the Montenegro striker. Andre Villas-Boas is considering making a renewed bid for the player this week. The 22-year-old, who has also been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Real Madrid in recent months, only signed a new five-year deal with the Serie A club a few months ago. But Fiorentina are thought to be prepared to sell the highly-rated youngster and president Andrea Della Valle recently admitted that interest from clubs around Europe had led to a new deal only being agreed after much stalling from the Montenegro international.
