The Montenegrin forward was heavily linked with some of Europe's top clubs this summer prior to completing a switch to the Etihad Stadium from Fiorentina.

He has joined a star-studded squad at City, and one that is expected to challenge for top honours on multiple fronts in 2013/14.

Jovetic claims it is that expectation which convinced him to link up with the Blues, with their a desire on his part to ensure that the club get back on the trophy trail in Manuel Pellegrini's first season in charge.

The 23-year-old told the Daily Mail: "There were other offers, other interest in England, but I don't want to name the clubs. City were quick in the way they moved for me and that proved they wanted me a lot.

"They are playing to win the Premier League. They are playing in the Champions League. They have a very good team and I hope I will be winning some trophies here.

"That's important. I was in Florence for five years, but I won nothing."

He added on where he sees himself fitting into a new-look City side: "I don't feel any pressure.

"I know about how great (Carlos) Tevez and (Sergio) Aguero are as players. They are two fantastic players, but all I can do is my best. Replacing Tevez will be a massive task. But I will just give 100 per cent and try to fill those shoes in the best possible way.

"Obviously it depends on the tactical system, but I like to either play on the left-hand side cutting in or just behind the front striker, playing as a second striker. We will see."
