Sebastian Giovinco hopes his future lies at Juventus, but admits he has an important decision to make in January.
The diminutive Italy international continues to struggle for regular game time at the Italian champions, sparking exit rumours.
The likes of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Chelsea have all been linked with the 27-year-old playmaker in the recent past.
Giovinco is not ready to open the transfer door just yet, but concedes that his situation needs to improve in Turin if he is to ignore interest in the New Year.
He told Rai Sport: “I’m not resigned (to being a substitute), it’s not in my character.
“I have to evaluate many things but I’m not thinking about it now.
“I’ll try to give my best, then we’ll see later this year if I will continue at Juventus. I hope so.
“The season has only just begun. I hope to be able to add my contribution.”
