Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic is on the brink of a £27 million move to Manchester City. With only personal terms left to be agreed upon the 23-year-old striker is set to sign a five-year deal earning £120,000 per-week at the Etihad.

New manager Manuel Pellegrini has targeted the Montenegrin international as a direct replacement for Carlos Tevez now that the Argentinian striker has signed for Italian Serie A champions Juventus.

A source close to Jovetic said: “It’s pretty much sorted he’ll go to City.

“They just have to sort his contract. It shouldn’t be a big problem.”

The signing of Jovetic will take Pellegrini’s spending to £70 million this season after having already signed Jesus Navas and Fernandinho.
