Stevan Jovetic was linked to Arsenal as a serious transfer target in early February and the rumours have strengthened ever since.
The Montenegrin gave an interview to 'The Sun' on the eve of last night's game with England, stating that he feels an 'affinity' with Arsenal and is honoured to be linked with them.
The chances of him signing for the Gunners are finely poised. Manchester City and Chelsea are also suitors for his services, and could potentially outbid Arsenal, so they must pull out all the stops to try to tempt him, as well as securing Champions League football.
With the prospect of signing the 23-year-old heavily under discussion heading into England's clash with Montenegro, it made the World Cup qualifier the perfect scouting opportunity for supporters to check him out in action.
The game finished 1-1 with Wayne Rooney's early opener cancelled out by substitute Dejan Damjanovic's equaliser, while not a disaster for England, it can hardly be counted as a success either.
Jovetic had five shots on goal, with only one finding the target, providing two key goalscoring opportunity passes for his teammates. A constant threat, he was fouled by England twice as many times as any other player.
But what did Arsenal fans make of his showing? Here is a selection of what they had to say on Twitter...
From tonight's performance, Jovetic doesn't look World Class, but it's just one game. He does have a great burst of pace and technique #AFC— Bimal (@TheBimal) March 26, 2013
Not massively impressed with this Jovetic bloke. Difficult to judge on one game but I don't see a 20m player here at the moment #AFC— JodyGoon (@JodyTheGoon) March 26, 2013

Jovetic is getting into the game a bit now. Dangerous player! Great to be linked to someone like him! #AFC— Liam Palmer (@LPalmer10) March 26, 2013
What did you think of Jovetic, is he worth £25 million?
