Inter Milan are interested in Manchester City youngster John Guidetti, according to the London Metro.
The 21-year-old has failed to make an appearance for the Citizens since joining the club when Sven Goran-Eriksson was in charge.
Other clubs reported to be keen on the Swede include Aston Villa and Lazio.
The youngster scored 20 goals in 23 games for Dutch club Feyonoord on loan in the 2011/12 season, and has attracted major attention since. But, Guidetti has yet to move from the club again, clinging on to the hope he'll grab a first-team chance at Manchester City.
That chance now looks very slim under Manuel Pellegrini, alerting the likes of Inter to his services.
Guidetti's path into the first-team picture is unfortunately blocked by the quality of Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Alavaro Negredo.
Before that, the likes of Carlos Tevez, Mario Balotelli, Emmanuel Adebayor and Roque Santa Cruz all got in his way.
He hasn't been given the chance at City, and could finally break away to try and forge a career away from the riches at the Etihad Stadium.
He recovered from knee surgery in October of this year, and Pellegrini had this to say:
"John starts this week working normally with the whole squad. So that is very good news for him and for the team and we see in the future what will happen with him.
"We must see how he improves every week. There is a lot of time with injuries so we will see."
With Pellegrini stressing he wanted to witness improvement, months down the line he must've seen very little, as Manchester City's current strike-force fly the flag towards a hopeful Premier League title.
