Fiorentina have told those clubs interested in signing Stevan Jovetic they will have to pay £30million for his services.
Arsenal are hot on the heels of the talented striker as Arsene Wenger looks to splash the cash on a new striker but he will have to break the bank if he is to wrap up a deal.
Fiorentina are coming to terms with the fact the striker will leave in the summer but they are determined to get as much money as possible and reports in Italy claim it will take £30million to secure his signature.
Manchester City are also keen on the Montenegro international, while Italian champions Juventus have entered the race and could offer cash plus a player in an attempt to win the day.
Arsenal have a good chance of beating off the competition after Jovetic admitted he would like to join the Gunners, but the whole deal could hinge on Wenger's men qualifying for the Champions League.
