Inter Milan are believed to be interested in taking Manchester City misfit Stevan Jovetic back to Serie A on a season-long loan, with a view to a permanent deal.

Inter Milan are apparently preparing to offer Stevan Jovetic a route out of his Manchester City injury nightmare by launching a loan bid for the striker this summer.

A large amount of time in the treatment room limited the £22m signing from Fiorentina to only two Premier League starts in his debut season at the Etihad Stadium.

City are optimistic that the 24-year-old will come good next term, but acknowledge that he is likely to be fourth-choice forward and could be tempted into parting with him as they fight to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.

According to the Daily Mail, Inter would be interested in bringing Jovetic back to Serie A, and would be willing to pay £18m for his services, but only after he proves his fitness during a season-long loan.

Jovetic still managed six goals in 16 games last season, despite struggling to command a starting place.
