The talented 23-year-old striker is reported to be a target for Arsenal, but Serie A champions Juventus are also touted as front-runners for his signature.
However, with the Montenegro international widely expected to move on, Della Valle is still hopeful that one of his prized assets will stay with La Viola.
"I'm going to meet him when he comes back from the national team. He has a right to decide where he plays," Della Valle told the Italian media.
"I hope he can stay with us."
However, Della Valle is fully aware of the interest Jovetic is attracting, and is planning for life after the hitman should he decide to move on.
"If he were to leave we have to be happy with the money that we'll have to strengthen the team," he added.
