Manchester City have denied making an offer for Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic after the player claimed the club were interested in him.
Jovetic, 22, was reportedly on Roberto Mancini's radar, and this week he claimed to have turned down the chance to join City as they took too long to make a move for him.
However, a City source claims this was never the case and that they were busy signing other players they were actually interested in on transfer deadline day.
"It sounds very much like the player's agent working hard to pull off a deal somewhere, so why not mention City? Best to ignore it!" the source told ESPN.
"We were pretty busy signing quite a few players on transfer deadline day, but this one was not on the list."
