Inter working on getting rid of Jovetic

With funds scarce as is, Inter could do without having to fork out the redemption fee for the striker and would rather make more funds from selling him

Inter are reportedly working on trying to sell Stevan Jovetic before the mercato closes at the end of the month understand.

The striker arrived on loan from Manchester City last summer but has been far from the player that encouraged the Citizens to purchase him from Fiorentina back in the summer of 2013. 

If Jovetic is to play a single minute this term for the Nerazzurri, they will be forced into paying €14.5 million towards the Premier League side as part of an option to buy clause inserted into the loan in the first place. Alternatively, if Jovetic doesn't play, Inter will have to pay the same fee if they find themselves within the top 17 in December.

Possible options

Fiorentina are said to be interested but are unable to cough up that fee on top of his 3 million a year wages.

Unnamed clubs from England are said to be curious about the Montenegrin but only wish to secure him on loan, something not beneficial to Inter.

There is always the chance that an offer could come from the noveau riche Chinese Super League too but no reports suggest such a thing is being thought about for the time being.

Will bring funds

After Inter's 2-0 defeat at Chievo on the opening weekend of Serie A, it is still more than clear that they are not the finished item and need more additions, perhaps more suited to Frank De Boer and his style, because afterall, he managed a team built by and for Roberto Mancini and his tactical capabilities.

Joao Mario and Gabigol's names dominate most of the transfer talk concerning the Milanese side while Moussa Sissoko's name has also came into the frame recently. None of the three come cheap and with a Financial Fair Play agreement to adhere to, any extra funds that they can come by are desperately required.
