Both are Montenegrin internationals and play together for the national side. Jovetic has struggled to score within the Serie A in the current season but has been integral in the Viola's bid to finish within the top three.

Vucinic, who has often had to play from the bench this season, confessed that he was interested in playing with the talented 23-year-old also at club level although he does not know if Juve will place a bid for the player despite having been previously linked with him last summer.

"We play close together in the national side and we often switch positions with each other," Vucinic told Tuttosport.

"I'd like to do that at Juve as he is a countryman and is a really strong player. However, there is Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici here who work on transfers, it is up to them to decide."

His side face Napoli on Friday in a crucial Serie A encounter but Vucinic does not feel that the match between the top two sides of the country will decide the title race.

"It won't decide anything as the race is still long," he said.

"It's also a lot harder in the second half of the season, as the sides who are fighting to stay up really start to give it their all and it is difficult to take on anybody.

"I know what the atmosphere will be like at the San Paolo, but I'm not worried by it. We'll just have to react to it like we did in Glasgow against Celtic - it'll pretty much be like that."

Vucinic also ruled out the prospect of a move away from Italy and especially was adamant about dismissing any links to the Premier League.

"I live one day at a time, but I'm happy in Turin. I'm not interested [in a move to England]."
