Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is interested in Bologna goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano.

The Italy international was watched by City scout Barry Hunter in action against Palermo on Saturday. Also present was Claudio Vigorelli, Vivano's agent.

Viviano would move to City as competition for Joe Hart, with Shay Given to be sold in the summer.

Hunter also took the chance to run the rule over Palermo star Javier Pastore.
