Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has set his sights on the addition of two strikers this summer, according to reports.

The Sun claims the new Citizens chief is closing in on both Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic, with the duo set to arrive from Sevilla and Fiorentina respectively for a fee in excess of £40million.

Pellegrini has spaces to fill in his attack at the Etihad Stadium, with Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez yet to be replaced after their exits in January and the summer respectively.

And, after watching his Manchester City side lose 2-0 to SuperSport United in South Africa, the Chilean is under no illusions that new players need to be drafted in.

“It’s difficult to say a date but before July finishes I think we will have more players,” he said after the loss.

“We are working hard for new players. We are not in a great hurry but it is clear we need two or three more players.

“It’s important we have a very good squad and I’m sure we will.”

Negredo, a Spain international, has been scoring goals for fun in La Liga since joining Almeria from Real Madrid ‘B’ in 2007. He earned a move to Sevilla in 2009, and continues to be one of the leading marksmen in his homeland.

Jovetic, meanwhile, joined Fiorentina from Partizan Belgrade in 2008, and continues to earn rave reviews as one of Europe’s hottest properties. He is still only 23.

Both players would add some serious firepower to Manchester City, as they look to get there hands back on the Premier League trophy.
