The Ghana international (pitcured right) is set to leave the Friuli club this summer. The 23-year-old, who is under contract with Udinese until June 2015, is a reported target of Manchester United and Juventus.

He wrote on social networking website twitter: "Udinese is in my heart, if I stay in Italy or go to England that doesn't change. Attention is now on Ghana and I hope to have news next week."

Asamoah, who scored three goals in 31 league appearances to help his team finish third in Serie A, added: "Can't say a lot except that wherever my future is I want to win things and better myself as a player. I will let you know where that is."

Udinese confirmed on Wednesday they were in advanced talks with Juventus regarding the possible transfer of Asamoah to the Italian champions, but insisted no deal had been reached yet.

Asamoah is currently on international duty preparing for the group phase of the African qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup.
