The striker, who is currently on loan from Serie A table toppers Juventus, has enjoyed his time with Viola and is not keen to return to Turin.
Fiorentina announced their arrival back as a major player in Italian football by pulling off the formidable coup of signing Chelsea target Valeri Bojinov in the January transfer window.
Despite the club's precarious league position, Miccoli announced that he is keen to develop his partnership with the Bulgarian wonder kid at the Florentine outfit.
"President Della Valla knows what I would like," Miccoli told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I'd like to help Fiorentina to come back as a big team once again. Lets give three years to me and to Bojinov.
"But in June there is the joint ownership to be resolved, I don't want to talk about Juventus, for this year that spell is closed."
Dino Zoff's side are enduring a troublesome start to his managerial tenure and are currently placed a lowly 16th in the Serie A table.
However Miccoli, who has contributed with nine goals so far this season, insists that Viola are too good to get relegated.
"We have everything to stay in Serie A, this isn't a relegation team, absolutely not. We are aware of this, and I assure you we will save ourselves."
