Stevan Jovetic could miss Friday’s Serie A game between Fiorentina and Napoli, according to reports.
The forward has been on sensational form, having missed all of last season due to a devastating knee injury.
According to Radio Blu, Jovetic is suffering from an ankle problem and therefore changing his running style to push through it.
However, this is in turn putting excess pressure on the knee that underwent double surgery a year and a half ago.
It has caused the knee to swell up over the last few days, so Fiorentina medical staff are unhappy about risking him for Friday’s game against Napoli.
