Montenegrin international set for Premier League move.
Fiorentina CEO Sandro Mencucci has flown in to England to clinch a deal with Manchester City for striker Stevan Jovetic.
Mencucci reportedly arrived in Manchester on Thursday morning, and is expected to meet with City officials in the evening as they draw closer to an agreement of the €30m transfer of the 23-year-old.
With the initial fee agreed, it is understood that the two parties will discuss the various bonuses attached to the deal before moving forward by allowing the player to agree personal terms.
Jovetic has been widely tipped to leave Florence this summer, but the blow of his departure will have been softened significantly by the signings the club have made thus far.
Joaquin and Mario Gomez have been brought in to replace him as Adem Ljajic looks set to sign a new contract with the club, while Giuseppe Rossi nears full fitness and is expected to form part of a three-man attack.
In contrast, it was revealed by Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis on a Q&A session on Twitter on Wednesday that the Montenegrin international had been seeking a switch to the Premier League for the past year.
It would appear that his wish has nearly been granted, with La Gazzetta dello Sport claiming that minor details now stand in the way of the deal being announced.
Jovetic had grown into one of the brightest stars of Serie A during his time in Italy, but he will now look ahead to a new adventure in Manchester where he will hope to have an immediate impact for new boss Manuel Pellegrini.
