Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are fighting for Fiorentina striker Stefan Jovetic.

The Premier League’s top clubs all sent scouts to the Italian side’s 3-2 weekend win against Udinese.

The Montenegro hitman has a buy-out clause of £40m but could cost considerably less, given that he has a contract until June 2016 and the fee would be unrealistic. It is far more likely he would be available for somewhere in the region of £30m.

Jovetic’s agent has made it clear he would be available in the summer. The player said: “I am content in Italy but I’m always looking out to improve myself. I have been looking out for a chance to play in the Premier League and I am prepared for that challenge.”

City would want to do a player-plus-cash deal with Roque Santa Cruz or Emmanual Adebayor possibly in the mix.
