Manchester City may be set for a battle to keep Stevan Jovetic at the Etihad Stadium, with reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport suggesting that the attacker is now Inter Milan’s top target.
The Montenegro international only arrived at the club 12 months ago from Fiorentina with a reputation as one of Europe’s best talents, but he struggled during his debut campaign in England.
As the Sky Blues clinched their second ever Premier League title the 24-year-old only managed two starts as a series of injuries limited his playing time.
Despite this, Inter are keen to lure him back to Serie A, and are hopeful that they can do so as they plot their new era of success.
With negotiations for midfield duo Gary Medel and Yann M’Vila close to completion, the Nerazzurri are looking to get in a marquee arrival, and see Jovetic as the ideal candidate.
There are confident that the Eastern European will be open to turning his back on English football after just one year, and that City themselves will be open to a sale as they plan their own transfer moves.
