The Montenegro defender spent one season at Manchester City, between 2011 and 2012, making 11 appearances in the league and scoring one goal.

However, he was not deemed to be good enough for the Citizens, and was sold to Fiorentina in 2012 as Matija Nastasic was brought to the Etihad Stadium to replace him.

Before moving to City, the centre-back featured for the likes of BSK Borca and giants Partizan Belgrade in his homeland, making his Montenegro debut in 2010.

According to Le 10 Sport, Monaco see the stopper as a potential replacement for Aymen Abdennour.

The Tunisia defender has been heavily linked with a move away from the club, with a whole host of sides from across Europe having been linked with his signature.

Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and West Ham United from the Premier League [all Express] are all understood to be keen on his services, while Barcelona, Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan may also look to pounce [all Goal].

Should Abdennour leave, Savic—who has impressed in Serie A since being shown the door by City—would be an able replacement.

However, should the Club of the Principality look to bring him to Ligue 1, they may have to face competition from the likes of Atletico Madrid, AS Roma, Zenit Saint Petersburg and AC Milan, all of whom are understood to be keen on the 24-year-old according to the French source.
