Stevan Jovetic completed his move the the Premier League runners up Manchester City and is looking to fill the gap that has been left from the departures of Mario Balotelli and most recently, Carlos Tevez.

The Montenegro international scored 13 goals in 31 games for Fiorentina last season and could help Manuel Pellegrini in his first season in charge at the Etihad Stadium.

Jovetic is more of a false number 9 rather than a striker - he likes to bring players into the game by holding the ball up and creating lots of chances, whilst his precise passing and quick feet that can get him out of sticky situations.

The 23-year-old forward started his professional career at Partizan, a team from the Serbian SuperLiga, where he managed to bag 19 goals in 33 games.

He also became Partizan's youngest ever captain at the age of 18 in January 2008. After his first season, he impressed many of the world's best football teams, like Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Since moving to Serie A side Fiorentina in 2008, Jovetic has really made a name for himself and for that reason has the chance to shine in the Premier League. But first, he will join his new teammates this weekend for their pre-season tour.

Jovetic has already established himself at international level, appearing for Montenegro 27 times, scoring 10 goals. 

After signing for City, Jovetic told reporters: "I'm happy to go to City because they play in the Premier League and they are a very important team. I just want to win something."

So, is Jovetic the real deal? I think so.

He may not be an out-and-out goalscorer, but because Manchester City have Sergio Aguero and newly-signed Alvaro Negredo, goals will not be in short supply this season.

Jovetic is a talent and he will bring a lot of energy to the team as well as creating and scoring goals aplenty.

With the plethora of attacking talent at Pellegrini's disposal this season, City will be going all out to re-gain their Premier League crown from neighbours Manchester United - and Jovetic could be the man to spark their title charge.
