Man City boss Eriksson: I like Amelia

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson admits he's keen on Livorno goalkeeper Marco Amelia.

Eriksson will ask City owner Thaksin Shinawatra for £4m to sign Italian international Amelia, 25, from Livorno this week.

The Swede's spending will rise to £47m when Palermo's Bresciano, 27, arrives for £3m.

Eriksson said: "I know all about Amelia - he's a very good goalkeeper."
