The 23-year-old has scored 35 league goals in five seasons with La Viola, who finished fourth in Serie A last season, and it appears City’s lengthy pursuit of the versatile forward has come to fruition yesterday.
A statement published on Fiorentina’s official Twitter account, @ACF_Fiorentina, read: “An agreement has been reached with Manchester City Football Club for the permanent sale of the player Stevan Jovetic.”
The EPL runners-up, now managed by Chilean Manuel Pellegrini, have already strengthened their squad with the recruitment of midfielder Fernandinho from Shakhtar Donetsk, winger Jesus Navas and striker Alvaro Negredo from Sevilla.
