Roberto Mancini has been linked with interest in Fiorentina attacker Stevan Jovetic for quite some time now and according to this source a deal has already been agreed that would see the young Montenegrin move to the Etihad Stadium at the end of the current campaign.
The 22 year old former Paritzan Belgrade man has been considered one of the hottest prospects in Europe for a few years but last term the stylish forward begun to deliver on his obvious potential.
Jovetic has been moved into a move orthodox striking spot and managed a very healthy 14 goals from 27 Serie A appearances last term and has already notched up three goals in the first two games of the current season for a Fiorentina side that is showing signs of great improvement.
Viola boss Vincenzo Montella was given funds to bring in a number of high-profile additions this summer with the likes of Alberto Aquilani, Mounir El Hamdaoui, David Pizarro, Stefan Savic and veteran hero Luca Toni all moving to the Artemo Franchi side.
Man City already did business with the Florence side this summer with Matija Nastasic moving to the club in a deal that saw Savic move in the other direction.
A move for Jovetic could be a further sign, along with the captures of Jack Rodwell and Scott Sinclair, that Mancini is looking to the future as he targets youthful additions to add to his expansive squad.
