Inter Milan have opened talks with out of favour Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic, according to the Mail Online.
The Serie A giants were hopeful of agreeing a loan deal for the Montenegro international, though the Premier League champions are keen for him to leave on a permanent basis.
Jovetic arrived at Eastlands in the summer of 2013, and has since racked up thirty-nine appearances in all competitions, scoring eleven goals.
He has started just nine games in the league this season with Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko ahead of him in the pecking order, while the addition of Wilfried Bony in January saw his chances even more limited.
City are holding out for a fee close to the £22m they paid Fiorentina to secure his services in the summer of 2013.
The 25 year old spent five years in Serie A, having begun his career with Serbian side Partisan Belgrade.
