Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has bulked up his strikeforce ahead of an assault on the Barclays Premier League title by signing Stevan Jovetic and Alvaro Negredo.
Jovetic, whose imminent transfer to the Etihad Stadium was confirmed by former club Fiorentina, arrives in Manchester on undisclosed terms but it is understood the Serie A side valued the 23-year-old Montenegro international at around 23million euros (£20million).
The announcement followed the earlier capture of Spain international Negredo. The former Sevilla star, 27, has joined Pellegrini's cause for a reported £16.4million plus add-ons of up to £4.2million.
The business sees the Chilean tactician make two concerted moves to bolster his frontline before the domestic season begins in August as 2012 league champions City aim to dethrone fierce rivals Manchester United.
A statement published on mcfc.co.uk read: "Manchester City are delighted to announce the signing of Stevan Jovetic from Fiorentina.
"The 23-year-old Montenegro international will now join up with his new team-mates over the weekend."
Negredo will wear the vacant number nine shirt with Jovetic taking number 35.
Although Jovetic missed the entire 2010-11 Serie A season due to a cruciate ligament injury, he became a key part of Fiorentina's system nevertheless. He hit 14 goals in the 2011-2012 campaign and added 13 more as Vincenzo Montella's men finished fourth in May.
Jovetic has also represented the senior Montenegro side since 2007, playing 27 times and scoring 10 goals.
He is reunited with former Fiorentina team-mate Matija Nastasic at the Etihad Stadium and joins Negredo, midfielder Fernandinho and winger Jesus Navas as one of Pellegrini's four summer recruits.
Negredo was fourth top scorer in Spain last season with 25 league goals, behind Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Radamel Falcao.
Negredo told a press conference in Spain earlier this week: "I have spoken to Navas, he's an important player in anyone's squad and I'm very happy to be playing with him again.
"Manuel Pellegrini completely convinced me to join Manchester City. It's a big club and a new challenge for me."
