Premier League Transfer News — 19 July 2013

joveticItalian club Fiorentina have announced that they have agreed terms with Manchester City for the sale of star forward Stevan Jovetic.

The clubs are believed to have agreed a fee in the region of £27million for the Montenegro international.

Jovetic is now expected to travel to Manchester to have his medical.

Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo is also expected to complete his move to Eastlands in the next few days.

Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has claimed that Chelsea are interested in acquiring his services. This comes off the back of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho stating that Wayne Rooney is the Blues only summer transfer target.

Higuain has already been linked with big money moves to Arsenal and Napoli this summer, as he looks for a fresh start away from the Spanish capital.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are waiting to hear if their bid for Barcelona central midfielder Cesc Fabregas will be successful. The Red Devils submitted a £25million bid for the former-Arsenal captain earlier this week.

The bid has reportedly alerted his former-club Arsenal and Manchester City of the Spaniard’s availability. The Spanish internationals future could be decided in the next few days.

Barcelona could use some of the money from the sale of Fabregas to make a £12million bid for Liverpool centre-back Daniel Agger, according to the Sun. Barca’s chances of signing first choice target Thiago Silva seem to be slim and the Catalan club could now turn their attention to the Dane.

Stoke City could be set to make an £8million bid for Hannover’s Mame Biram Diouf. The former-Manchester United reserve striker has been a big hit in the Bundesliga. It seems that Mark Hughes believes that the Senegalese international could be the man to spearhead his attack next season at the Britannia Stadium.

Will United succeed in their bid for Fabregas?
