Man City to deal in Italian prospect Antonelli

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson is ready to snap up Italian goalkeeper prospect Marco Antonelli.

The News of the World says Eriksson has handed the Italian prospect a trial period after receiving rave notices from his contacts.

Antonelli, 17, is tipped for a big future since breaking through at lowly Serie D outfit Sestese. The starlet has also attracted the interest of top clubs in his homeland and would command a fee of around £200,000 with future add-ons.
