Jovetic Eyes EPL Future

Fiorentina and Montenegro star, Stevan Jovetic, says that he would love to play in the English Premier League.

The 23-year-old striker has long been on EPL radars. Liverpool’s failure to sign him when he was Rafa Benitez’s top transfer target was one of the reasons for the Spaniard’s exit from the club.

Jovetic has now been linked to Arsenal and Manchester City, and he has encouraged the pair of clubs by admitting an affinity for “the strongest league in the world.”

"It sure is nice when you are interesting big clubs like Arsenal and Manchester City," Jovetic told the Daily Star.

"It feels good because the English game currently has probably the strongest league in the world.

“I'm very comfortable in Italy but the Premier League is at the top of the football world - and perhaps the best. We will see what happens in the future."

Along with Juventus striker and fellow Montenegrin Mirko Vucinic, Jovetic represents some of the most accomplished fire power in the Serie A.

And while he dreams of testing himself in the Premier League in the future, testing himself against the league’s England players in a World Cup qualifier is a tasty enough assignment for Jovetic for now.

"There is no pressure on me," he said, ahead of his nation's match against the Three Lions on Tuesday night.

"On the contrary, I love these big games and they motivate me all the more to do well. I don't believe it will affect my game in a bad way at all."
