Reported Chelsea target and Fiorentina starlet Stevan Jovetic spent a year on the sidelines, but he is now back in action and intent on proving that he remains one of the most exciting young players in the game reports

The 21-year-old midfielder, who has been dubbed the 'Montenegrin Messi' because of his silky dribbling skills, deceptive pace, and sublime touch, is set to line-up against England on Friday night, and will relish the opportunity to showcase his talent.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas has been credited with an interest in bringing the player, who joined La Viola for €8million in 2008, to Stamford Bridge. But so far his attempts to get him to Chelsea have failed amid ongoing talks over a new contract to extend his stay in Italy's Serie A.

For a long time, it looked as though Jovetic's future would be played out away from football, after an anterior cruciate ligament injury forced him into a prolonged spell on the treatment table.


But after a series of impressive performances for Fiorentina this term, he finally looks to be getting back to his best, and now that Jovetic's resolve is as great as his talent, it is surely only a matter of time before he embarks on the Barclays Premier League, either with Chelsea, or someone else.

He mused earlier this month: "I can see the bright side of my injury: when I arrived in Florence I was little more than a child, now I have become a man."

A warning sign for England surely, as they head to Montenegro in search of a point to confirm their place at Euro 2012.
