Stevan Jovetic's representatives claimed the Montenegro international will sign for Monaco and wear Kylian Mbappe's No.10 shirt, before deleting their intriguing Instagram post.
The 18-year-old is set to join on an initial loan deal, with PSG having the obligation to buy at the end of this season for a fee understood to be €180 million.
Monaco have targeted Jovetic as a player to bolster their attacking ranks and his management company Lian Sports posted a picture of the 27-year-old apparently in Monaco's dressing room.
The Instagram post, which was subsequently deleted, read: "AS Monaco is currently presenting Stevan Jovetic who will be wearing jersey #number10."
Other pictures emerged online, seemingly from the same photo shoot, which showed Jovetic to be wearing a number 10 Monaco shirt.
However, he spent the second half of last season with Sevilla, scoring seven times in 24 appearances for the Spanish club.
