Juventus are closing in on Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic.

The Manchester Evening News says Nastasic has a price tag of around £12million on his head and reigning Italian champions Juve are at the head of the queue.

Roma may join the chase if they sell Mehdi Benatia, wanted by several top clubs.

Nastasic has failed to force his way into boss Manuel Pellegrini's plans despite his early form for ex-boss Roberto Mancini.
