Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic is close to agreeing a move to Inter Milan, according to The Guardian.

The Montenegro international has seen his first-team status at the Etihad Stadium diminish since January and he's now ready to leave the club after a two-year struggle to establish himself in Manchester.

Talks are underway between City and Milan officials, with the view for Jovetic to join the Italian club on loan next season before permanently transferring next summer in a deal worth £10.5 million.

Jovetic joined City back in 2013 after agreeing to leave Serie A side Fiorentina in a deal worth £22 million, snubbing other clubs in the process.

However, due to injuries and serious competition for places, the 25-year-old failed to live up to his hype and quickly became a fringe player at the Etihad Stadium.

After arriving in England, Jovetic was already behind Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo, and even when the latter left on loan to Valencia, he still struggled for regular game-time.

Things were made all-the-more difficult for the ex-Fiorentina man when City announced the arrival of Wilfried Bony from Swansea City in a deal worth £28m.

Manuel Pellegrini signed him in January and immediately dropped Jovetic from his Champions League squad to make room for his new arrival, which was ultimately the final nail in the coffin for the frustrated striker.
