Manchester City are confident of landing Fiorentina attacker Stevan Jovetic.

The Sunday Mirror says City think they will be given first ­refusal on Jovetic.

And that would mean a nervous wait for Chelsea and Arsenal to see if City want to add £25million-rated striker to their squad.

City struck up a good ­relationship with Jovetic's club Fiorentina last ­summer while negotiating the ­Matija Nastasic transfer that saw Stefan Savic move in the opposite direction.

Jovetic also shares the same group of agents as Nastasic and City feel that places them in the ideal ­position if they decide to bid for the 23-year-old.
