Juventus are closing in on Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic with an offer totalling €18m, according to SportMediaset.

SportMediaset are reporting that the Bianconeri asked to take Jojo on loan for 6 months for a fee of €2m, with an option to buy at the end of the season for a further €16m.

The player was originally linked to Juventus before leaving Florence for Manchester in 2013. Jovetic has struggled for fitness having spent time out due a series of injuries and is set to move down the pecking order even further following City’s €28m signing of Wilfried Bony earlier today.

The report also suggests that Manchester City are asking for a mandatory buy-out clause, rather than an optional one. Juventus, however, are prepared to make the transfer a permanent one, only if Jovetic plays more than 10 games this season.
