At just 16 years of age, Stevan Jovetic made his senior debut for Partizan Belgrade and little over 12 months later he really came to the fore as he scored a hat-trick in a UEFA Cup tie.
It was not long after his senior debut for Partizan that he was also making his bow on the international stage, and he was part of the inaugural Montenegro side following their declaration of independence.
Along with the likes of Mirko Vucinic and Simon Vukcevic, the 20-year old is already considered a key member of his national side, with 13 caps and six goals to his name.
A hugely gifted and skillful playmaker, he can play out wide and up front, but central midfield will surely be his long-term home. Two-footed, although very much preferring his right, Jovetic has a wonderful eye for a pass—which is the main weapon in his armoury.
He also has the ability to finish, and his 10 goals in just over 50 appearances for Partizan is testament to that.
He was also the captain of Partizan in early 2008, before moving to Serie A and Fiorentina in a £7.3 million deal. This was despite interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid.
Jovetic made nearly 30 appearances in his debut campaign in Serie A, and although he was in and out of Cesare Prandelli's side, he still did enough to earn plaudits throughout Italy.
Plaudits which increased dramatically when he scored both goals in a 2-0 win at home to Premier League giants Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League.
