Serie A giants Inter Milan are eager to sign Stevan Jovetic from Manchester City, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.

The Montenegrin forward has struggled for form and fitness ever since joining from Fiorentina in the summer of 2013, and has fallen further down the pecking order following the arrival of Wilfried Bony from Swansea City in January.

City flop

Roberto Mancini is eager to conduct a raid of his former club, and has also been linked with swoops for Yaya Toure and James Milner in recent weeks as he sets about bolstering his squad ahead of next season.

Jovetic was signed by Manuel Pellegrini nearly two years ago expected to take the Premier League by storm, but has instead become the latest big-money flop to touch down at the Etihad Stadium.

Title

Despite City blasting their way to the Premier League title last term by scoring 102 goals, the Montenegro international weighed in with just three league goals as the likes of Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo thrived in his absence.

He ultimately ended their victorious campaign with a poultry six goals in 18 appearances, and has fared little better this term by finding the net just five times in 22 games in all competitions.

The arrival of Bony consequently thrust Jovetic out of their squad for the knockout stages of the Champions League, and the Ivorian will now most likely be preferred to his teammate in the final stages of the season as they look to ease the pressure on Pellegrini’s shoulders.

Inter rebuild

With both Walter Mazzarri and Mancini having struggled to coax the best from their current crop of players, Inter are keen to commence a major overhaul of their squad when the transfer window reopens on July 1.

Jovetic could be paired with hotshot Mauro Icardi if the clubs can agree either a transfer fee or strike a loan deal, with the Italian youngster currently vying with Carlos Tevez for the Golden Boot award.

Lukas Podolski’s loan from Arsenal looks unlikely to be made permanent given he is still yet to get off the mark for his new employers, whilst they are also monitoring Javier Hernandez who is unlikely to be welcomed back to Manchester United by Louis Van Gaal.

Mancini is also keen to be reunited with two players to were regular picks whilst he was at the Etihad Stadium. Toure remains his number one target whilst Milner could also move if they beat Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool in the race for his signature.
