Striker Stevan Jovetic arrives for a first spell in the Bundesliga.

Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin have boosted their striking options by signing former Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic on a free transfer.

Hertha are 19/10 to begin their league season with a win at Cologne on 14th August, while their hosts are 11/8 to take the three points and the draw is available at 5/2.

Jovetic delivers goals

The 31-year-old from Montenegro was available after his contract at Ligue 1 AS Monaco expired at the beginning of the month.

He scored 18 goals in 61 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit and has scored 103 goals in 365 games in his career as a whole.

Jovetic, who has also had spells at Inter Milan and Sevilla since starting his career at Partizan Belgrade, scored eight times for City in 30 outings between 2013 and 2016 and will hope to be involved when Hertha take on Liverpool in a pre-season friendly in Austria on Thursday.

Whether in the Premier League, Serie A, Ligue 1 or La Liga, Stevan has scored goals everywhere he's been.

Hertha sporting director Fredi Bobic, who joined the club this summer from their Bundesliga rivals Eintracht Frankfurt, said he was delighted to have acquired the services of the experienced forward.

Hertha finished 14th last season and won just eight of their 34 matches, which left them just three points ahead of the relegation places.

Bobic welcomes experience

Bobic said: "With Stevan we're getting a classic centre-forward who brings a lot of experience from the top leagues in Europe.

"Whether in the Premier League, Serie A, Ligue 1 or La Liga, Stevan has scored goals everywhere he's been.

"With his footballing qualities and also his human ones, he'll help us immediately. We're really looking forward to it."
