Arturo Lupoli insists he will be giving his all to ensure Derby reach the Premiership, despite agreeing to join Fiorentina in the summer.
The on-loan Arsenal striker has played a prominent role for Billy Davies' Rams in what has been a successful season so far, but his three-year sojourn in English football will come to an end in June.
Lupoli will join Viola when his contract with Arsenal expires, and in the meantime the young Italian is determined to help Derby cling onto top spot in the Championship.
"We have seven games left and it is very exciting," Lupoli told the Evening Telegraph.
"The manager makes the choice of who plays. If he calls on me, I will be ready to give 100 per cent for the team to help get them promoted.
"I will think about Fiorentina after the season is over but at the moment all I want is for Derby to be promoted and to score goals if I get the chance to play."
