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.
