Manchester City are watching Atletico Mineiro striker Diego Tardelli.

Brazilian sources say Tardelli, 24, is being tracked by City leading up to the January market.

The Daily Mail says there is talk of a move to St Etienne in France but, recently, Manchester City have been linked with him.

Tardelli, who struggled at PSV Eindhoven and Real Betis, is now equal top scorer in Brazil on 15 goals with Flamego ace Adriano.
