Juve keen on Jovetic and Higuain

Juventus director Beppe Marotta has signalled his club’s interest in signing Stevan Jovetic as he prepares to speak to Real Madrid about Gonzalo Higuain.

Fiorentina's president has suggested Jovetic could be sold to Juve

Having led Juve to two consecutive Serie A titles, coach Antonio Conte has indicated that he wants to strengthen the squad to try to close the gap on Europe’s elite clubs, and Marotta had already suggested that Higuain and Carlos Tevez were under consideration.

“We want to reinforce the squad, to give Conte a team that is even more competitive,” Marotta told Rai Sport on Tuesday. “We are evaluating several attacking options.”

Sky Sport Italia reported that Marotta was due to travel to Spain to speak to Madrid about Higuain on Wednesday, while Fiorentina star Jovetic is also on the club’s radar, and Marotta said on Tuesday that they were “both great strikers”.

He added: “Higuain is certainly very interesting. We’re looking to sign players who want to come to Juventus and are willing to leave their club.”

He was less certain about Jovetic, given his club’s rivalry with Fiorentina, but left the door open to a bid.

"We hear a lot about Jovetic playing in black and white, but he remains a Fiorentina player and we respect that. I must admit, though, that he is a great player,” he said.

Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle has confirmed Montengro forward Jovetic could leave after the club’s failure to reach the Champions League, and refused to rule out the possibility he could join the champions.

“Jovetic must understand his future, make the right choice,” he was quoted as telling the Italian media. “The important thing is that, if he does leave, we compensate for his sale by bringing in suitable replacements.”

Asked about a potential move to Juventus, he said: “He could, as well as Manchester, Liverpool... The chances of him staying are not good. He has behaved properly this season. I asked him to help us get back into Europe and he helped.”

Daniel Prade, Fiorentina’s sporting director, played down talk Jovetic could be on his way to Juve.

He told Rai Sport: “I have not been authorised in any way by my club to speak to Juventus. Jovetic’s situation will be resolved directly by the president. We will see what happens. We would be happy if he stayed with us.”

The 23-year-old has also been linked with a €28 million move to Arsenal, but Prade said: “The way I see it, this interest is non-existent. I have not had any contact with them at all. I don’t think Arsene Wenger is interested in the boy.”

Meanwhile, Conte and club captain Gianluigi Buffon led a Juve delegation that headed to the Vatican to meet Pope Francis, who is said to follow the club.

"It was a great opportunity and I have to say I didn't expect there to be so many Juventus fans in the Vatican - and by that I mean real fans,” Buffon said, according to the Associated Press.
