Manchester City are close to signing Italian striker Rolando Bianchi after agreeing a fee with his current club Reggina.

The 24-year-old, who scored 18 goals in Serie A last season, is to undergo a medical at City´s Carrington training ground on Thursday.

Bianchi, who has played for the Azzurri at under-21 level, would be City´s first signing since Sven-Goran Eriksson´s appointment as manager.
