Fiorentina star set for Old Trafford or Anfield?
Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic has signalled his desire to move to England, with Manchester City and Liverpool likely to be at the front of the queue for his signature.
The Montenegro forward has been mightily impressive for the Florence club since returning from a cruciate knee ligament injury that kept him out for the entire season.
This season, Jovetic has scored 12 goals in 17 Serie A matches, and at the age of just 22 is already blossoming into a fine goalscorer.
Man City are very publicly looking to offload their troubled striker Carlos Tevez, which would leave senior forwards of Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko.
All great players, but Roberto Mancini is thought to want four players to ease the effects of the gruelling fixture list upon his players.
Liverpool’s need for a forward is well documented, with their desperately poor chance conversion rate of just 8.5% the worst in the league.
Andy Carroll, Luis Suarez and Craig Bellamy all have some brilliant – and very different – attributes, but unfortunately not one of them is as proficient at putting away chances as they currently require.
It was that profligacy that saw Kenny Dalglish linked with a move for Aston Villa striker Darren Bent in the summer, but it would seem the Reds are looking for a player more capable of involvement in link play.
Jovetic certainly possesses that quality, being able to play either behind a striker or out wide, and he could very well be a fine solution to the goalscoring difficulties currently at Anfield.
