Mancini makes swift move for next transfer target - reports

Published Add your comment

Manchester City are in talks with Fiorentina in the hope of signing up winger Alessio Cerci, according to Italian reports.

Roberto Mancini has apparently offered the Serie A club an undisclosed bid for the 24-year-old, while one newspaper on the continent, The Gazzetta dello Sport, suggests that the winger has already agreed personal terms with the Citizens.

Fiorentina have apparently set Cerci's pricetag above the £6 million mark, well within Manchester City's budget, even after Mancini signed Argentine striker Sergio Aguero for £35 million this week.


If he were to join Manchester City, the Italian would provide wide service for Aguero in competition with Shaun Wright-Phillips and Adam Johnson, who has been linked with a move to Chelsea and Everton.

Cerci was only just signed by Fiorentina at the end of last year for €4 million, and has been impressive in his 24 appearances for the club, as well as for the Italian Under 21 international team.
