Reports in Italy have suggested that Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic could be on his way to Juventus.
The Italian club are in the market for a striker following Alvaro Moratta's injury in his first training session with the club, and are set to revive their interest the the Montenegrin, according to Tuttosport.
Jovetic, who had an injury hit first season in England, started Man City's opening day win against Newcastle, but is not guaranteed a first team slot.
As is the norm with many Italian outfits, any move at this stage would come in the form of a loan move, with an option to buy next season.
The striker revealed that he had rejected offers from Juventus earlier in the summer, but may be more inclined to a temporary switch.
With Alvaro Negredo currently ruled out until at least October, it would appear that City would be reluctant to leave themselves short of attacking options by selling the forward, who only signed for the club in a £22 million deal last summer.
As things stand, only Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero join Jovetic as the three fit striker, competing for two slots up front.
According to the reports though, Juventus are not the only Italian club vying for his signature.
Roma, who came second in Serie A last season, are also rumoured to be interested, but any concrete off remains scarce.
There are some benefits to City accepting a potential loan offer for their man.
If he were to have a poor season, be it through injuries, poor form or just lack of appearances, his value in the eyes of other clubs would not be akin to that of his owners.
However, if loaned to Italy and he manages to recapture some of the form he produced to attract the interest of clubs across Europe, then City will still be able to recoup the majority of the £22 million they paid for the 24 year old.
