Jovetic scored in the 41st and 55th minutes of Manchester City's 3-1 win over Liverpool on Monday.

Starting up front with Edin Dzeko once again, Jovetic is now just one goal away from matching his total in Premier League play last season. The City strikers have been playing quite well of late, with Sergio Aguero scoring again Monday to record a goal in both of City's matches this season. It seemed likely that Jovetic would move to the bench if Aguero was inserted back in, but after Monday's performance, it could be Dzeko that moves.

Manchester City have indicated that Jovetic is not for sale and will reject any bids for the forward, according to the Mirror.

Jovetic was the subject of Inter Milan bids earlier this summer, but now Juventus has been trying to test the waters of bringing him back to Italy. Manchester City do not appear likely to sell at this point.

Jovetic led Manchester City with five shots in Manchester City's Premier League opener Sunday against Newcastle, although none landed on goal.

Jovetic started up front with Edin Dzeko, but he wasn't able to find any of the goal-scoring form that saw him score four times during City's tour of the U.S. during the Guinness International Champions Cup. Jovetic is the clear third striker on the depth chart behind Dzeko and Sergio Aguero, with the latter only coming off the bench due to a lack of match fitness following a post-World Cup holiday. Once Aguero is fit, it wouldn't be a surprise if Jovetic went back to the bench of most Premier League matches.

Jovetic has scored four goals during the Guinness International Champions Cup in the United States, with manager Manuel Pellegrini saying "If he's fit all the year, he will be a very important player for us," the Daily Mail reports.

Jovetic missed most of last season with calf and hamstring injuries, but he's taken advantage of the increased playing time in the States with Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo not playing. He has been starting up front with Edin Dzeko and they could be a very powerful duo early in the season if they can keep up their once Premier League play starts on Aug. 16.

Inter Milan are submitting a third bid for Jovetic after being rejected twice earlier by Manchester City, according to the Daily Mail.

The striker has only made five starts for City, but has a favorable history in Italy where he spent five seasons with Firoentina. Inter has tried previously to sign him on loan and on a permanent transfer.

Jovetic scored in the 89th minute of Manchester City's 4-0 win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Jovetic is often passed over for Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero, but he appears to have moved above Alvaro Negredo on the depth chart.

Jovetic (hamstring) came on for Samir Nasri in the 82nd minute of Manchester City's 5-0 rout of Fulham on Saturday, taking one shot, which was on goal.

Jovetic had not featured since February 22 against Stoke, when he played 13 minutes off the bench before suffering his injury. It's been an injury-plagued season for Jovetic, who made only his eighth Premier League appearance Saturday. With Sergio Aguero (hamstring) still out, and Edin Dzeko missing Saturday's match with an illness, Jovetic could have a bigger role in Tuesday's Manchester derby.

Jovetic (hamstring) is in the squad list for Saturday's match against Fulham, ESPN reports.

Jovetic has a chance to feature, as Sergio Aguero continues to sit with a hamstring injury, although with Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo both healthy, it's tough to see Jovetic having a big impact.
