Scoring goals are more important than ever in Serie A and Juventus’ Andrea Cavagna is in the race to get back to the top of his game.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League, but will only start in his first season in Italy.
“I’m not interested in playing in the top division,” Cavagna told Sky Sport Italia.
“I’m here to do my job.
The team is a bit tired.
But I will continue my development and try to improve my game.”
Cavagas goal on Tuesday night gave Juventus the lead at the break, but his team had to wait for another half hour for the winner.
The Bianconeri have lost seven of their last 10 games, and Cavagas form was highlighted when he was sent off in the 3-0 defeat to AC Milan in the Champions League in November.
“It was a tough game,” Cavagans team-mate Mario Mandzukic said of the game.
“He was not in his best condition.
It was tough.”
The Italian international has made five appearances for Juventus since joining from Roma in January 2015, scoring two goals.
After being released by the Nerazzurri on transfer deadline day in 2016, Cavagamas contract expired.
However, he is not due to receive a new deal until 2021 and is on a one-year loan deal with Napoli.
Juventus are currently on the verge of securing a Champions League place from Roma, and their Champions League qualification will be vital for any hopes of progressing to the last four of the competition.
Cortona on Juventus’ Champions League rivals: “We’re looking forward to the competition and want to win the trophy.”
“We are not favourites.
We need to beat them to stay in the competition.”
