Fiorentina have rejected a €30m offer from Juventus for Stevan Jovetic, reports the Corriere dello Sport.
The Old Lady have just days left to buy a new attacking player ahead of their Champions League bid and Jovetic has again been targeted.
It was thought that the Viola would do a deal with any club who made such an offer for the Montenegro international, but the Della Valla family have – for now – failed to be tempted into a sale.
The Tuscan club have often spoken of a gentleman’s agreement with the player that they would discuss a sale if any side were to make a €30m bid.
Juventus have been looking to add quality to their striking options after trying and failing to sign Robin Van Persie before he left Arsenal for Manchester United.
They have also been linked with Atheltic Bilbao’s Fernando Llorente and Edin Dzeko of Manchester City, amongst many others.
