Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini sees Napoli star Ezequiel Lavezzi as the ideal replacement for Carlos Tevez.

Mancini has made no secret of his admiration for the exciting Argentine attacker.

And Napoli have concerns of a bid arriving as early as this month from City for Lavezzi. It's expected should City manage to offload Tevez, Mancini will push to sign Lavezzi as an immediate replacement.

Napoli may be prepared to do business, with Eduardo Vargas viewed as a potential replacement, himself, for the Argentine.
