Milos Krasic has confirmed his desire to move to Italy but will let his agents discuss the future as he concentrates on the World Cup.
The CSKA Moscow winger has attracted interest from clubs in some of the top leagues in Europe and has made no secret of his desire to move on this summer.
The 25-year-old expressed his excitement at the prospect of a switch to Juventus earlier in the week, but he does not appear any closer to finalising a deal.
Krasic does not now want to think about anything other than the World Cup but he admits his preference is to link up with a Serie A side before the close of the transfer window.
"Yes, I want to play in Italy. I don't know what team, but I want to go there. I have heard about Juventus," he said.
"They (his agents) are deciding my future, but I am sure that they will choose the best for me. I am focused on the World Cup for now."
Krasic has already been likened to Juve great Pavel Nedved, for his appearance as well as his playing style, but insists there is a long way to go before such comparisons should be made.
"Being compared to Nedved always makes me proud. He was a phenomenon, a champion, and a great person," Krasic told Tuttosport.
"Maybe I look like him physically, but I am not at his levels yet.
"I would like to be like him and do what he did."
Krasic believes Serbia's opening World Cup game against Ghana on Sunday is pivotal to their hopes of progressing out of Group D, which also contains Germany and Australia.
"We are picking up our game, we have a good team and there is no reason why we shouldn't play well and get a good result against Ghana," he said.
"It would lift our spirits up a notch ahead of the big game against Germany.
"We can feel the atmosphere building up and we are fully prepared."
