Jovetic is a favourite of Inter coach Walter Mazzarri and talks were held with his agent on the weekend.
Tuttosport says Inter chief Piero Ausilio met with Fali Ramadani to discuss Napoli midfielder Valon Behrami and also raised the prospect of Jovetic returning to Italy next season.
For the moment, both Jovetic and City have no plans to part ways.
However, Inter will try again later in the summer with the proposal of taking Jo-Jo on-loan should the prospect of regular first team action at City appear remote.
