Fiorentina have confirmed that in-demand forward Stevan Jovetic "wants a new experience", and that the club are prepared to sell the player if they receive the right offer.

Jovetic, 23, has been widely tipped for a big-money move this summer, with the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Manchester City among those reportedly interested.

And Sandro Mencucci, the Viola general manager, has now revealed that the Montenegro international is seeking a move elsewhere, but said that any potential suitors will have to meet the club's valuation, believed to be around €30 million.

He told Sky Sports: "Jovetic wants a new experience and we'll try to make him happy, but only if a suitable offer comes in."

Mencucci went on to add that midfielder Adem Ljajic, who has also attracted interest from around Europe, looks set to stay at the club.

"We want to renew Ljajic's contract and will see how that negotiation process evolves," he said.

Fiorentina finished fourth in Serie A this season, just two points off Champions League qualification.
