Manchester City are going to have to prepare for welcoming back a player they were pretty sure was already out the door.
Stevan Jovetic has spent the season on loan at Inter Milan, but now the Serie A giants are looking in to how they can get out of making the move permanent.
The two clubs had agreed a £12m deal for the 26-year-old, but after only managing five goals the San Siro outfit don’t want to keep the loanee.
Jovetic has struggled to make an impression since moving to Manchester, but teams in England should keep their eye on the striker.
When looking at who would be best served by bringing in Montenegro’s vice-captain three Premier League sides spring to mind.
Crystal Palace and Swansea City have both struggled in front of goal this season, while Tottenham Hotspur are known to be on the look out for a striker.
The Eagles only have two frontmen on their books who have managed to find the net in all competitions, with Emmanuel Adebayor and Connor Wickham both with a single goal to their names.
Clearly Alan Pardew needs to invest in some firepower and a summer move for a player who scored 27 times over his final two seasons at Fiorentina would be a good piece of business.
Meanwhile, the Swans find themselves in a relegation battle based largely on how wasteful they have been in front of goal.
The Welsh club have let in less than any other team in the bottom five, but only cut adrift Aston Villa have scored less than them.
Clearly, they need to address this fear of finding the net in the future and Jovetic would help to do that.
For Spurs, bringing in the Man City man would allow Mauricio Pochettino to acquire a player who could deputise for Harry Kane without breaking the bank.
The Montenegro international also has the added bonus of already having Premier League experience and this is something that makes him more appealing than other targets for the north Londoners.
