Roberto Mancini has revealed that Man City are working to bring two highly sought after strikers to Eastlands.

With Yaya Toure and David Silva already added to City's forever increasing squad, the manager has his sights set on bolstering his front line. Wolfsburg marksman Edin Dzeko appears to fit the bill, with Mancini admitting that plans are already in place to attempt to bring the Bosnian international to Manchester.

'Certainly Dzeko is more than just an interest,' Mancini told reporters.

Dzeko was the top-scorer in the Bundesliga last season but, should he stay in Germany, City will turn their attentions to Inter Milan's temperamental youngster Mario Balotelli - according to the Daily Mail.

The 19-year-old played under Mancini during the Italian's time at the San Siro, and Balotelli recently expressed admiration for his former manager. And, despite the striker's history of conflict with team-mates and coaches, Mancini said that this was of no concern to him:

"I have no problems. The most important thing is that they are good, so that they go on the pitch and play well.

"We are always interested in good players. If Inter decide to sell (Balotelli), we will be there."

City are also rumoured to have rejected a bid from Turkish side Besiktas for want-away forward Robinho.
