The Montenegro star has attracted interest from across Europe with Arsenal believed to have been leading the chase for the 23-year old, but Juventus are also reported to be keen on securing his services.

Jovetic's agent had previously stated he would favour staying in Italy and Buffon and Bonucci both admitted they would like to see him link up with the Serie A champions.

"Jovetic could help Juventus in our growth at European level," said Buffon.

Bonucci added: "Jovetic showed with the Fiorentina shirt he is able to make a difference, he would be welcome at Juventus."

Juventus have also been linked with Argentine strikers Gonzalo Higuain and Carlos Tevez, but Bonucci says the Real Madrid man would be his choice.

"Who would I take between Higuain and Tevez? Higuain," he said.
