Manchester City are favourites to sign Fiorentina attacker Stevan Jovetic.

Both City manager Roberto Mancini and first team coach Angelo Gregucci have confirmed their interest in the Montenegro international this season.

Jovetic is also wanted by Juventus and Arsenal, but La Nazione says only City have shown a willingness to meet the Viola's €30 million asking price.

Mancini sees Jovetic as an ideal replacement for Mario Balotelli, who was sold to AC Milan last month.
