Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has raised the prospect of Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic moving to play his football in England.
De Laurentiis’ Azzurri have been linked with the magical attacking talent, but La Viola are demanding top dollar to do business.
Indeed, Fiorentina have insisted that Jovetic can become an icon similar to Roma legend Francesco Totti, such is his potential.
The 22-year-old has been linked with clubs outside Italy and in England it is Arsenal and Chelsea who have been mooted as serious suitors.
But according to De Laurentiis, there are as many as four Premier League sides hoping to snap up the Montenegrin star.
"He is interested in a great team, but also money of course", the Napoli supremo told Sky Sport 24 when speculating on what could drive Jovetic to leave Fiorentina.
And the Azzurri president then raised the possibility of England for the in-demand forward.
"I think his future could be in England because four clubs from there have contacted him", insisted De Laurentiis.
Jovetic is under contract with Fiorentina until 2016, placing the Serie A outfit in a strong position to demand a substantial fee for his release.
