Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is hoping to buy a fellow countryman from Serie A side AC Milan, according to talkSPORT.

Luca Scapuzzi, 20, who has been loaned out by the Italian club to lower league Portogruaro, has been lined up by the Manchester club to secure some long-term striking talent.

The attacking Italian is so far goaless in his two year senior career, but has been held onto by Milan since he joined the youth ranks in 2001.

His career has been somewhat held up by a knee ligament injury that kept the player out for most of last season.


Mancini's Citizens may well be in need of a striker as interested clubs swarm around Carlos Tevez, who is interested in a move away from the Barclays Premier League.

The striker is said to be available for £1 million, a small fee for the Blues who are yet to make full use of their almost bottomless funds during this season's transfer window.
