FOOTBALL : Manchester City agree fee for Fiorentina striker Jovetic

Manchester City agree Stevan Jovetic fee say Fiorentina

Manchester City have dipped into the transfer market again - agreeing a fee to sign Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic. Jovetic, 23, has been a long-term target for the 2011-12 Premier League champions and is rated at about £28m.

The Montenegro forward, who scored 13 goals in 31 games for Fiorentina last season, and his club Fiorentina tweeted:  "An agreement has been reached with Manchester City for the permanent sale of the player."

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has already strengthened his squad this summer with the signings of midfielder Fernandinho, 28, from Shakhtar Donetsk and winger Jesus Navas, 27, from Sevilla.

Striker Alvaro Negredo, 27, is expected to follow former Sevilla team-mate Navas to the Etihad Stadium in a £20m deal.
