The Serie A side have been given encouragement in the chase of the Montenegrin after he was cut from Manuel Pellegrini’s Champions League squad to make way for new signing Wilfried Bony, reports Daily Star.

Pellegrini has claimed that Jovetic is still a part of his plans despite the snub but if City were to sell him they would be expecting to make a large portion of the £22m they paid Fiorentina for him in July 2013.

Jovetic had to be cut from City’s squad because of the penalties imposed on the club by UEFA for being unable to comply to Financial Fair Play. City are only able to pick 21 rather than the customary 25 players in Europe this season.
