Jovetic wants Juve move

Stevan Jovetic has given the clearest signal yet that he wants to sign for Juventus.

Jovetic, courted by Arsenal and Chelsea too, wants to link up with Antonio Conte at the back to back Italian champions.

Jovetic told La Gazzetta dello Sport “I gave my all to Fiorentina, but Antonio Conte could help me grow at Juventus.

“I don’t want to say the word ‘goodbye,’ as I don’t like it. I’d love for Florence to always maintain a positive image of me. They gave me the nickname Jo-Jo and I feel the same affection – along with gratitude – for the fans.

“I have been at Fiorentina since 2008 for five very intense seasons. I feel that I gave my all to Fiorentina, so I have nothing more to give here.

“Juve have been after me for a year. They say they want me and that in their list I come above Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Carlos Tevez and Gonzalo Higuain. Who wouldn’t be flattered by that? I am and I don’t think it is a betrayal to admit that.

“I feel that Conte could help me to grow and we have reciprocal respect.”
