The agent of Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic has told The International Business Times that Arsenal and Liverpool have not made offers for the Montenegrin international.

In an exclusive interview with The International Business Times, the agent of Fiorentina sensation Stevan Jovetic has dismissed immediate speculation linking his client with a move to Premier League giants Arsenal or Liverpool, claiming neither club have made any recent enquiries for the player despite rumours to the contrary.

The 21-year-old striker is widely regarded as one of the brightest young talents on the continent and has been perpetually linked with a lucrative move to the Premier League.

Last month, Kenny Dalglish and Arsene Wenger in particular, were strongly rumoured to be preparing January offers for the Montenegrin international. However the player's agent, Fali Ramadani, told the IBTimes that neither club had made their interest known to Lian Sports, the management company responsible for looking after Jovetic's interests.

"Arsenal has never made a formal offer to us." Ramadani told The International Business Times.

"There was interest from Liverpool when Rafa Benitez was manager, but not since."

At the end of October, Fiorentina confirmed Jovetic had penned a new three-year contract extension keeping him at La Viola until June 2016.

Various sources have since hinted at the presence of a lofty escape clause, but Ramadani suggests like any other player in world football, Jovetic's future would inevitably depend on money and whether or not Fiorentina receive an offer they deem suitable.

The forward's agent was also eager to reiterate the striker's commitment to the Italian club and suggested the decision to prolong his La Viola career was heavily influence by the support he received during his injury nightmare last season.

"It is a question of money (Jovetic's future) and you never know what will happen, but Stevan was delighted to sign a new contract at Fiorentina. The club was very kind to him during his rehabilitation last season."

Jovetic missed the whole of the 2010-2011 season following a cruciate knee ligament injury, but has since made an excellent return to full fitness and has re-established himself as one of the leading young players in Italian football.

Although Ramadani stressed Jovetic's happiness at extending his stay at the Stadio Artemio Franch, he suggested the Premier League would always remain an attractive proposition.

When asked if a move to England would be of interest to Jovetic in the future, Ramadani said: "Why not? The Premier League is the best in Europe and of course the top four clubs in England would be attractive."

The hugely popular player, who was signed from Partizan Belgrade in 2008, has drawn favourable comparisons with La Viola legend Roberto Baggio and in the aftermath of signing his new deal, Jovetic reiterated his love of Fiorentina and revealed his delight at extending his stay.

"I'm happy to have renewed the contract," the Montenegro international told Fiorentina's official website. "I'll always give my best for the Fiorentina shirt."
