Jovetic Needs To Leave

Fiorentina midfielder Stevan Jovetic says that he "needs" to leave the club this summer.

The Montenegrin previously devoted himself to the Viola but the 23-year-old says that after five seasons at the club, he is ready to move on.

Jovetic has been linked with a number of top European clubs, including Juventus, Chelsea and Arsenal, and he admits that he will consider his options.

"I've been at Fiorentina in 2008, five very intense seasons," the former Partizan Belgrade forward said in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.

"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 the Viola fans have always asked me to be upfront: 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.

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

"With (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."
