Speculation in Italy is mounting that a £6million bid for Bulgarian striker Valeri Bojinov has been accepted by Fiorentina, while Real Sociedad´s Javi Garrido is also a confirmed target. In addition, Eriksson is ready to pay £4million for Croatia defender Vedran Corluka.
The 21-year-old was part of the Croatian side which defeated England in the Euro 2008 qualifiers last October and while the Dinamo Zagreb star would not qualify for a work permit under the current criteria, City are almost certain to win any appeal.
