Manchester City are reportedly set to secure deals for both Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic and Sevilla hitman Alvaro Negredo.
City boss Manuel Pellegrini has promised to bolster his squad at the Etihad Stadium and confirmed on Sunday that his strike force was in dire need of strengthening this summer after Carlos Tevez joined Juventus to follow on from Mario Balotelli's January exit to AC Milan.
And while both Jovetic and Negredo have been strongly linked with moves to City, it seems that Pellegrini will go for both as opposed to picking one or the other.
City have reportedly agreed to pay Italian Serie A side Fiorentina £23million plus £5million in add-ons for 23-year-old Montenegro international Jovetic, and will hope to conclude a deal in the near future.
Meanwhile, Spain striker Negredo is finally poised to make a £21million switch to City after weeks of speculation.
Despite the Primera Division outfit snapping up Carlos Bacca to replace Negredo, Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido has always stressed the player would stay put if City did not match their valuation.
However, it now looks like both parties have agreed on a fee and Negredo will become the second player to leave Sevilla for the Premier League outfit this summer following on from winger Jesus Navas.
