Jovetic set to stay at Fiorentina in January

The Montenegrin, who is Fiorentina's top scorer with six goals and should return to action after over a month out injured, has been the subject of transfer speculation with media reports saying Juventus are interested in the attacker.

"Do I dream of playing for a bigger club? It's better to say not too much. Generally, I do not think too much about what will happen in the future. If something has to happen, it will happen anyway. It's up to me only to work and devote myself to football," Jovetic told Montenegrin website

"I've been here five years and I've learned the language and local habits and even if going abroad would be a new challenge I would like to stay in Italy.

"I've had offers but I wanted to stay [in the close season] and I did, also because the president promised to strengthen the squad and fight for the Champions League, both promises which have been kept."

Surprise packages Fiorentina are on 29 points and in joint-fifth in Serie A, nine points behind leaders Juventus and four behind Napoli in the third Champions League place.
