When Stevan Jovetic came to England for £22 million last summer, a lot was expected of the Montenegrin, however due to a series of injuries the striker has been unable to show his worth for Manchester City as he’s watched Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko secure the Citizens second title in three years.
TalkSPORT reports how the 24-year-old is now rumoured to be wanted by former Liverpool and Chelsea boss, Rafa Benitez, at his new club Napoli.
The Spaniard has long been an admirer of the player, dating back to his Liverpool days, but now he is stepping up his chase for Jovetic to return to Italy where he had a five-year stint in Florence, scoring 40 goals in 134 games, leading the side to Champions League qualification for the first time in a decade.
The teenage sensation that shot onto the scene with Partizan Belgrade - where he made club history by captaining the side at only 17 years of age, could be looking for regular first team football while Manchester City may be looking to re-coup some of the money paid so a move may be beneficial for both parties.
