Manchester City are closing in on Fiorentina winger Alessio Cerci.

Cerci is a favourite of City manager Roberto Mancini.

Gazzetta dello Sport says the 24-year-old has already agreed personal terms with City and the two clubs are now negotiating on the price, with Fiorentina thought to want at least £6.5m.

Cerci has long been a target of Mancini, who wants his fellow countryman to provide the service for new signing Sergio Aguero.
