The Montenegrin striker only joined the Citizens from Fiorentina in the summer of 2013, and arrived with a reputation as one of European football’s most promising attackers.
However, he’s made next to no impact at the Etihad Stadium under Manuel Pellegrini, with a series of niggling injuries and high competition for first-team football in Manchester having been issues.
Now the situation appears to have alerted Brendan Rodgers, who is looking to add some firepower to his blunt Liverpool side.
The Reds have netted just 47 Premier League goals – they managed 101 last term – with winger Raheem Sterling their highest scorer with a rather paltry tally of seven.
Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert’s woes have been factors, but the biggest problem has been Daniel Sturridge’s constant injury concerns.
Rodgers is thought to see Jovetic as an option that could offer him more quality up front when the England international is out of action.
