Manchester United are weighing up a bid for £10million-rated Cagliari defender Davide Astori, according to the Daily Express.
The 26-year-old has been the subject of intense speculation for much of the summer, and might still earn himself a move before the close of the transfer window.
Red Devils boss David Moyes is reportedly keen to lure Astori to Old Trafford, as he looks to make a number of last-minute acquisitions with the deadline fast approaching.
The former AC Milan stopper joined Cagliari in 2008, and has gone on to make 140 appearances for the Serie 'A' outfit over the past five years.
Astori turned down the opportunity to join Spartak Moscow last year, but with interest increasing in the Italy international, a transfer appears much more likely.
AS Roma and Napoli have both been credited with an interest in the centre-back, as well as Astori's former club AC Milan, who could rival Manchester United for the player's signature.
