The adviser to Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admits he's keen on Napoli star Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Giorgio de Giorgis, who was also once Mancini's agent, says both Lavezzi and new Anzhi signing Samuel Eto'o were on City's summer shopping list.

"Lavezzi, along with Eto'o, were on the list of alternatives should Manchester have failed to get Aguero, or sold Tevez," revealed De Giorgis.

"In the end it all worked in their favour."
