The Montenegrin forward is set to be a free agent after his contract expires with French side Monaco at the end of this month (June 30, 2021), and he shares the same agent as Sarri, Fali Ramadani.

Sarri already looked to sign Jovetic during his time with Napoli, but eventually went for other options. This time, the 62-year-old Italian coach may finally get his man.
