Sky Sport Italia claim Juventus target Stevan Jovetic is close to leaving Fiorentina for Manchester City.
The Montenegro international was a known transfer target for the Old Lady, but the Viola’s strict €30m valuation of the forward is deemed as excessive by the Italian champions.
That has seemingly opened the door for the Premiership club who reportedly met with agent Fali Ramadani this morning.
The representative has now scheduled talks with the Viola in a bid to finalise a transfer for the 23-year-old forward.
City are ready to offer €27m, but that could rise to over €30m if certain bonus clauses are activated.
The move could be confirmed within the next 48 hours.
