Arsenal and Chelsea target Jovetic admits admiration for Premier League

Stevan Jovetic, the Fiorentina forward on the wanted list of both Arsenal and Chelsea, has revealed he is excited at the prospect of playing in the Premier League, ESPN has reported, but also that he is flattered by Juventus’ interest in his services.

Jovetic fired Fiorentina into the Europa League with 13 goals in the season just ended but does not see his future at the club. Instead, he has admitted he wants a new challenge after five years with the Florence club in Serie A.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Jovetic said: “I’ve been at Fiorentina in 2008, five very intense seasons. I really feel like I’ve given everything.

I’m young and ambitious and it is normal to feel the need to test myself elsewhere. I do not think there’s anything wrong with desire.

Florence and la Viola (club’s) fans have always asked me to be up front: so here it is. I need stimulation elsewhere, I need to devote myself in a top club. I’ve played in Europe with Fiorentina, now I want to win in Europe.

Jovetic added that he is honoured by Juventus’ long-standing interest in him and that he is top of the Serie A champions’ wanted list, but did not rule out the prospect of playing in English football.

For a year [Juventus] have said they want me,” Jovetic said, adding: “ I come before (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic, (Carlos) Tevez and (Gonzalo) Higuain in their list. Who would not be flattered?

With (Juventus manager Antonio) Conte I feel that I could continue to grow. I think the feeling is mutual. But the Premier League is also fantastic championship, as is La Liga. I have some opportunities so we’ll see.
