Montella braced for Jovetic departure

Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella has acknowledged Stevan Jovetic could leave the club during the off-season transfer window.

The Montenegro international was reportedly a transfer target for Juventus last year, while Arsenal are believed to be interested in the forward’s services.

Montella knows Fiorentina could be tempted to sell one of their star men if the right bid comes in.

“You know Jovetic is a player with great talent who could have different ambitions,” he told Tuttosport.

“So, I think, as president (Andrea) Della Valle said, there is the possibility of him leaving if we were paid properly. I’m aware of this.”

Fiorentina enjoyed an impressive 2012/13 season, finishing fourth, just two points shy of a UEFA Champions League qualifying berth, but Montella feels it will be hard to go one better next term.

“Next year it will be difficult to come third and maintain the trend of this season but I hope the fate of the end of this season, however, gives as more anger and ambition to achieve something,” he said.

Fiorentina feel they were unjustly denied a place in Europe’s top competition on the final day of the season, as a debatable Mario Balotelli penalty and a late Philippe Mexes strike saw Milan stage a late comeback against Siena, emerging 2-1 victors to seal third spot.
