La Viola are on the look out for a forward after the injury to Giuseppe Rossi and have been linked with both Jovetic and Metalist Kharkiv's Alejandro 'Papu' Gomez, whom Montella managed at Catania.

Jovetic spent five years with Fiorentina before sealing a big-money switch to the Etihad Stadium last summer.

However, the 24-year-old has only featured five times for Manuel Pellegrini's side this term - scoring twice - after a series of injuries and a bout of illness.

In comments reported from a press conference in Italy, Montella is quoted as saying: "We are looking for a forward who is able to play along with Mario Gomez, who is about to recover (from his four month injury), and who knows how to score goals and can also play as a winger.

"Alejandro Gomez? He is a very interesting player.

"Jovetic's return (on loan)? It's not science fiction, but he is injured too," said Montella, concluding with a smile.

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
