The latest pair of strikers to be linked with Manchester City are Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic.

Having sold both Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez in the last two transfer windows, City are a striker short and Manuel Pellegrini has a forward at the very top of his transfer wishes.

After conceding defeat with Edison Cavani, the likes of Negredo and Jovetic are far from City's first choice, however they can't afford to be short of strikers come August time.


Negredo has consistently scored goals for Sevilla, yet the move to a massive European club has never materialised.

At 6ft 1, Negredo has the perfect game for the Premier League and would be an excellent foil for Sergio Aguero.

His club are holding out for £28million, which for a 27-year-old is quite alot, even by City's standards.

Tottenham have also previously shown interest in Negredo and given their lack of a world-class striker could be a real rival.


Jovetic looks certain to leave Fiorentina this summer and has attracted interest from both Juventus and Arsenal.

The two interested parties are, or are very close to signing strikers this summer and Jovetic appears to have fallen down their pecking order.

With Fiorentina holding out for £23million, Arsenal and Juve have found cheaper recruits.

Money is no stumbling block for City and given Pellegrini's desperation to bring in a forward, a deal could easily happen.

Although Jovetic plays better just off a striker, Pellegrini is still interested and the prospect of Jovetic and Aguero playing together, is one most City fans would love to happen.
